Catalyst The Chemistry of Music Project free Music Making lessons and Studio recording sessions for young people aged 12 -25 Years old

Music Making Project for Children and Young People Age: 13 to 25

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.    

Young DaDa Ensemble is the expansion of a successful pilot project to deliver accessible music-based activities to 70 young people in Liverpool over a period of two years. It will present progression routes for aspiring musicians, provide musical role models and help affect organisational change.
 
 

This is a two-tier project that develops a team of Assistant Music Leaders for a new music workforce whilst simultaneously delivering high quality music-making activity for young people to create immediate and lasting impacts for their social development and musical progression.

The project is delivered in 2 phases with time to pause and reflect in between so we may improve the delivery programme where appropriate/required. 

Each phase will support 4 musicians (young adults) to become Assistant Music Leaders through formal training, 1-2-1 mentoring and support, practical work experience and undertaking a nationally recognised qualification in Education & Training (level3).

70 young people facing a range of challenging circumstances will be recruited on to music residencies based in our music studio and education workshop, in Leicester city centre. Over 20hours of engagement young people will improve their technical musical skills and abilities, create an EP in collaboration with their peers, widen their networks and improve their social abilities, all whilst completing an Arts Award to recognise their achievements. 

Aldeburgh Sings will provide sustained musical engagement opportunities for young people in Suffolk. The three year programme will create two vocal strands, one in the north of the county, in Lowestoft, and one in the south of the county, in Ipswich. The two towns represent some of the most challenging circumstances facing young people in Suffolk, from those defined as NEET and at risk of social exclusion in Lowestoft to those from ethnic minority groups and non-English speaking in Ipswich.

A national celebration of the UK’s next generation of creative talent, handpicked by the best in the business
