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.

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.
