A new youth music project offering free lessons in a variety of instruments and technical skills is starting at the Jubilee Church Life Centre on Tuesday March 25.
The Live Sound project will provide young people aged between 13-18 with 30-minute music tutoring in everything from drums and guitar to clarinet and violin, as well as song writing and vocal sessions.
For those interested in the technical aspects of the music industry, there will be workshops on sound, lighting, photography, film, editing, recording, stage management, advertising and animation.
An open mic youth café will run alongside these lessons so that the young people involved in the project can socialise, jam together and perform.
Youth worker Vicky Lord said: “Our aim is to provide fun, exciting opportunities for young people in which they can really develop their skills and talents, within a safe environment.”
The sessions will run twice a week on Tuesdays 3.30-6.30pm and Thursdays 7-10pm, with places limited and offered on a first come first served basis.
In addition, the organisation is asking for donations of musical instruments and related material, and for anyone who would like to help with the project to get in touch.
Pat Whittaker, senior leader at the centre, said: “We a have a range of opportunities for individuals with related skills and talents like musicians, technical support, graphic designers and youth cafe assistants.”
