‘a person who thinks and acts in an independent way, often behaving differently from the expected or usual way’

Southampton Music Hub (funded by Arts Council England) are pleased to launch the Music/Mobile Tech project. This project is an exciting new opportunity for young people in Southampton and the Isle of Wight to make music using mobile technology. Following a £30,000 grant from Youth Music, the project will offer young people the chance to take part in music composition projects, live music performances and community workshops. The Music/Mobile Tech project will also provide training and resources for families, teachers and community workers to help them to make better use of mobile technology.

Come along to Whistable Youth Centre during the Easter holidays where DHRProductions we will be running an 8 day project where you can come along, jam on musical instruments, write a song, record a song and then in the second week storyboard, film and edit an accompanying music video. Sounds good??? Pop along, its free :-)

This project between Abingdon Music Centre (Charity 309181) and the Early Intervention Service in Abingdon (The Net) aims to support 16 vulnerable young people in achieving a music-based Bronze Arts Award.

The project will establish a facility in Brandon offering a range of fantastic musical opportunities for the whole community. Activities will include rap nights, band workshops, DJ clubs, technical training, recording sessions and performances. The project will also allow young people the chance to receive training and achieve accreditation.

The project will work with groups of young people across the region to develop a manifesto stating music provision, activity and events that they want in their area; support them to make this happen and start a Music Revolution!

Following initial training sessions young people will be supported by Music For Change tutors and Skillnet Group trainee music facilitators to deliver music workshops in local schools, youth centres and community organisations. The young people will also be supported to plan, arrange and evaluate workshops.

The project will provide 10 music leaders with bespoke mentoring training and link them with 10 to 15 mentees for a year. Each mentee will receive support to develop their music-making skills and increase their knowledge of local music-making opportunities. Mentees will be signposted to further training and resources.

A music and movement project for infants, toddlers and pre-schoolers where parents, carers and children can play, sing, dance and giggle together.

We are a youth centre offering a variety of free developmental activities for 11-19 year olds. We have a three room music studio and rehearsal space within the building. With funding from Youth Music we have started an exciting new project called Ham in Session.
This has two parts to it. We will offer evening drop in sessions to local young people where they can gain support and tuition on various musical forms including studio recording, production, guitar, drums, rapping, dee jaying etc.
Whilst during the school day we will work with local organisations to offer accredited music courses to groups of children and young people referred to us. This includes secondary, primary and special needs schools. We will also run an early years/ family learning session in conjunction with the local Children’s Centre.

The project will offer three lyric-writing and music production courses, to young people in Oxfordshire aged 15-25. Participants will develop their expressive and musical ability, as well as improve their independence and confidence through performing and organising music nights. They will also have the chance to undertake an Arts Award.

A series of free workshops for teenagers including music production, live recording, lyric writing, performance skills and DJing. Participants will have the chance to collaborate with like-minded musicians and perform the work they produce. They will also meet, share work and collaborate with musicians from further afield.
