School Ground Sounds is a music youth charity based in Brixton. We collaborate with secondary schools and youth centres across London and work directly with young people in lower income areas to provide additional music opportunities and to enhance their music education.
Our programme includes recording studio experience, 1-1 mentoring with industry professionals, a 6 week industry crash course, songwriting competitions, live performance opportunities and the showcasing of talent online. We are currently running our 2017 Songwriting Competition for young people aged 11 - 18. Last years competition was a great success and we are looking to extend our reach this year. The competition includes feedback from industry professionals amongst other benefits and closes on the 31st May 2017. This is a fantastic opportunity for young people to have their music heard and a great chance to develop their studio techniques and performance confidence! With one week until the competition closes, we are reaching out to ensure this opportunity reaches as many young people as possible.
Our Songwriting Competition for 11-18 year-olds which closes on May 31st is in full swing!
The competition is a great opportunity for young people at any stage in their development to share their talent and be in with a chance of getting feedback from a panel of industry professionals including; Atlantic Records and ILUVLIVE. The competition offers a host of prizes including; a free studio session with Raw Material, a ONE P70 bluetooth speaker from our sponsors Orbitsound and radio plays on Reprezent Radio for the winning entry!
Last year we had over 60 young musicians involved in the competition and this year we are looking to extend that reach.
If you or a friend are a young aspiring songwriter or your organsiation works with young people who are passionate about music, Please spread the word and enter!
Closing at Midnight on Wednesday 31st May 2017
