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.    

The Glee project, based on the popular TV series, gives children from Edmonton the opportunity to take part in Glee clubs where they are able to showcase and develop their singing and performance skills.  The fully inclusive clubs, run by inspirational tutors from Pineapple Performing Arts School (PPAS), focus on fun and raising aspirations.  There is also a competitive element where all Glee clubs are brought together at the end of the project to perform at a prestigious London theatre in a live show in front of a panel of judges.  Families of performers are invited to cheer them on and a range of prizes are awarded including PPAS scholarships, trophies and certificates.

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.

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.

The New Young Voice Collective (NewYVC) Mass Singing Programme will create a Massing Singing Programme for childrem, young people, schools and teachers in East London.
