Projects

'Making Tracks' is an exciting new Youth Music funded project - in partnership with Trinity Community Arts, Basement Studios and ACE Bristol - that from February 2018 will be providing life-changing music making experiences and enable young people from challenging circumstances to take the first steps in their music-making journey.

 

Groundswell Arts are delivering their project 'The Lullaby Project' in 20 settings including schools , children's centres. and private sector nurseries over the next two years. Working with paired music practitioners each setting works over a half term period on the project. Musicians work with parents to compose songs for their children and the project focuses on strengthening bonds between child and carer, setting and parent, and develop language confidence and self esteem in the children taking part. 

Alongside this across two years also in Haringey Groundswell Arts will run 10 weekend events called 'Family Jams' these events will focus on a wide range of family music making opportunities and provide a progression route from the Lullabies programme. 

 

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 RPU collective is a project between Hull Music Hub and the youth service.  Staff from the music hub will work in youth centres across the city engaging young people in developing instrumental skills, song writing, DJing, and singing.  They will work towards bronze arts awards, put on gigs and performances and record their music in Hull University Studios.  

Sound Minds: A concept album and theatrical project exploring young peoples's stories through their music. Brought to life through rap, spoken word, music and theatre.

Our overall aim is to provide young people with an opportunity to take part in professional music performance and production, which we hope will boost their self-esteem and help them to engage more with education and less with illegal activities, and thereby improve their overall future prospects.
