This is a two-tier project that develops a team of Assistant Music Leaders for a new music workforce whilst simultaneously delivering high quality music-making activity for young people to create immediate and lasting impacts for their social development and musical progression.

The project is delivered in 2 phases with time to pause and reflect in between so we may improve the delivery programme where appropriate/required. 

Each phase will support 4 musicians (young adults) to become Assistant Music Leaders through formal training, 1-2-1 mentoring and support, practical work experience and undertaking a nationally recognised qualification in Education & Training (level3).

70 young people facing a range of challenging circumstances will be recruited on to music residencies based in our music studio and education workshop, in Leicester city centre.
