Does Music make a difference to NEET young people?
For NEET young people there are often many barriers to learning and developing, and they are often told that they will never achieve anything in life.  Using music as a tool for our groups helped raise their confidence and motivation and has provided them an opportunity to achieve accreditation.
On Trax funded through Youth Music provided young people with the time, space guidance and venue to practice skills of writing and recording their own styles of music in their own time and at their own pace, using their personal stories and inner most thoughts to produce lyrics.
The project offered a unique opportunity to work alongside professional music producers who shared their skills, knowledge and expertise and stories, and created a platform for young people to develop knowledge about the music industry.
“I didn’t know there were so many jobs available, my writing skills are not that great, but my IT skills are spot on, and I feel I could do something more technical even if it’s behind the scenes, I might look at doing a course at college to help me for my future” (young person’s comment)
