We thought the Give a Gig project was a fantastic opportunity for our young people to perform and feel conected to projects and other work going on across the country. They have put together a little video and are pround to have raised funds for youth Music. We hope it all runs again next year. What experiences did other organisations have?

 Set up in 1991, the Community Recording Studio teaches film and video skills as well as music to children and young people in Nottingham. We provide access to professional equipment and key industry contacts, including musicians like Estelle and Aloe Blacc.
We are based in St Ann's. The charity has been running for over 20 years, and was founded by members of the local community who have first-hand experiences of the needs of young people growing up in the area. We provide positive and inspirational learning environments where young people primarily between the ages of 8 and 25 and members of the community can develop through experienced based education, with the support of professional, qualified and experience youth and community work team. Youngsters who began their career at the studio have even gone on to perform at festivals like Glastonbury and their music has been aired on BBC Radio One. A few artists have also been signed to record labels.The studio operates for five days a week, and the facilities are free to use.Training is offered so that individuals can not only develop their own skills but also pass on the knowledge to others in the community.We want to develop their skills, capacities and capabilities, and enable them to participate in society as independent, mature, responsible adults. We also want to advance the education of the public, in particular young people, in music and the art and science of studio recording.
 

Its been a busy and exciting time for the Concept Music Project team and the young musicians and producers who have been taking part. With two of our 'Pop Up Studio' residencies completed and drop in sessions happening regularly in Corby and Leicester, we are looking forward to music making with more young creatives and pleased to be collaborating with a range of project partners throughout 2017 and into 2018. This is an initial reflection on our first residency at the Core in February.

An account from one of our Assistant Music Leaders on the Evolve project and how they progressed initially over the Music Residency week and accreditation and then over the course of the programme.
