Projects

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 National Youth Jazz Collective is delighted to announce its National Youth Jazz Summer School 2014 will be held in the stunning setting of Rossall School, Fleetwood 10-17 August 2014

The project will work with Youth Offending Teams to implement music workshops for young people in the youth justice system. Young people will engage in something dynamic: they will obtain qualifications, develop skills and resilience, and be supported to continue music-making activities and progress into mainstream education or training.

Music tutors from Sistema-inspired projects in England will learn from and share best practice with each other and the wider music education workforce through performances, conferences and webinars. Following a visit to Venezuela to see Sistema in practice, seven English projects have been adapting best practice to an English context.

The project aims to ensure a nationally efficient and co-ordinated music education offer, impacting significantly on musical progression practice across England. Through an England-wide network of people, organisations and skills, the project will enable the potentially influential outputs currently being created to be further shaped and delivered.
