Greenwich & Lewisham Young People’s Theatre (GLYPT) has been creating high-quality art for and with young people for over 40 years!

We use the power of the arts to enrich the lives of young people, 2-25, and audiences and seek to enable, empower and challenge participants through delivering work of artistic excellence. 

School Ground Sounds works with secondary schools and young people in lower income areas of London 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 (The Grit School), songwriting competitions, live performance opportunities and the showcasing of talent online.

During 2016 Haringey Shed worked in partnership with Levi’s and the Victoria and Albert Museum, as the community partner to deliver the #SupportMusic Project.  We recruited young people from across London to take part in a two month music studio project, with mentor Skepta, culminating in a performance at the V&A to an audience of over 300 people. The partnership continues into 2017 and we now manage a purpose built music studio.  

 

Mini Mozart is a fun and interactive music class for toddlers and babies.

We’re delighted to be welcoming community musician, lecturer and composer Graham Dowdall to lead our ‘Exploring music in challenging circumstances’ workshop on Thursday 30 March 2017. We have spoken to Graham in the run up to the workshop about his musical interests, inspirations and memorable moments. He also sheds some light on what attendees can expect at his upcoming workshop, tickets for which can be purchased here.

Over the past year Sound Connections has delivered three events celebrating musical inclusion; one focused on early years, one on working with young people in challenging circumstances, and one co-produced by Wired4Music with Sound Connections championing youth voice and participation. All three areas of practice still fight for their place in music education practice and policy and it remains important to shine a light on the best work happening in these fields.

The are the highlights of the year...
