Get Your Act Together is a Lottery funded project providing formal, free, structured but practical and fun courses in music based subjects with groups of young people learning together and starting in January 2020.
With the support of qualified music mentors, young people aged 11 to 18 will also have the chance to form a band, going through the whole process from deciding on a name, style of music and the songs they want to play (whether their own or covers) right through to performing a gig in front of a live audience at a local music venue.
Participants gain valuable music, business and personal development skills along the way, and the programme encourages teamwork, making new friends and is a real confidence boost.
If you’re aged 11-18, or know someone who is, and want to get involved in this project, please contact us and we’ll be able to give you more information and sign you up. Call 0113 2442773 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
