Rhythmix recently published a report into our Music In Mind programme following a three year external evaluation by Dr Alison Daubney and Greg Daubney. Here we explore one young person whose experience of residential mental health care was transformed by music.

On Monday 27th March 2017 the Musical Director, Amba Tremain, ran a Music Leader workshop for staff and volunteers from The Urban Vocal Group. The workshop covered many important topics involved with running a music session with young people; the room was full with potential tutors, volunteers and current UVG staff members. 

Mavericks is a project that bridges feuding communities through music. 

Across the local areas there have been escalating tensions over territory and rivalry between different groups. Mavericks shows the path to a bigger picture, a better perspective. Going to prison for a postcode or a rift on social media is the biggest waste of a life. 

The project has brought everyone together to celebrate their individual talents and show how people from different areas can put aside their differences, make peace and collaborate to make great things happen.
