Using Music To Inspire Make Some Noise's vision is that the lives of children and young people in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent will be significantly enhanced by high quality opportunities to make music. Make Some Noise believes music inspires young people, and for many is also a catalyst for positive change. We explore innovative approaches that work towards better access to music for young people. Our core business falls into three categories:
Music Making We make it happen. Since 2001 we have worked with over 45,000 children and young people to make music of many styles. Make Some Noise manages or commissions experienced music leaders to work in a wide range of settings for example with babies & toddlers, with challenging or excluded young people, with families, in schools or theatres, in youth or community venues.
Leadership We support our music leaders to develop their musical and workshop skills, through training and advice, so they can offer the highest quality musical experiences to young people. We also help young musicians to get started in sharing their leading skills.
Information and Advocacy We want these opportunities to be sustainable, so we work to convince all our partners of the benefits and impact that music making can have on the children and young people they work with, and to raise funds for future work. Our work helps to achieve the government's Every Child Matters outcomes.
Make Some Noise is a limited company and a registered charity. It was one of 21 Youth Music Action Zones set up across England and Wales, by Youth Music.
