Greenstead Soundscapes is a new partnership between Roman River Music and the secondary school and feeder primary schools on Greenstead Estate, Colchester, an area of social deprivation and low access to arts and cultural engagement when compared to the national average.

Professional musicians will work with the pupils to compose an innovative piece of music that is responsive to themselves and their locality. During the project the pupils will compose a piece of music exploring their feelings and emotions during their transition from primary to secondary school.  

The year 6 pupils will perform their compositions at an in-school concert at the end of the summer term 2018. As they progress to secondary school in autumn 2018, pupils from the 3 primary schools will come together in year 7 and perform collaboratively.

This project will engage professional musicians, songwriters and producers, to work with young people aged 12-18 to support them to create their own music and lyrics.  The project will enable the young people to perform their songs infront of new audiences and in new spaces.  The young people will work in two groups to record their songs as an EP which will be released on the digital market with an accmpanying music video for at least one of the chosen tracks for each group.  The project will help the young peope to understand the music industry beter and help to signpost them should they want to do more with their music after this project has finished.

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.
