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.

JamTent - gets people closer to the artists they admire. It's a rare place where you can meet many people and artists from different backgrounds. This year more Cumbrian people got the chance to meet more artists from around the world over a two month period (including 3 intensive days at KC) than they would have done in the entire year had this project not gone ahead. This opportunity we have to work with KC, local charities etc, promoters and additional events could unlock opportunities for a lot of vulnerable people around the county and further afield funding permitting.
