Music-making has been linked to benefits in many areas of school life, from academic achievement to improved personal and social development. Yet far too many young people from disadvantaged backgrounds are unable to fulfil their musical talent, unnecessarily restricting their life chances. We want to change that.
School Ground Sounds works with secondary schools and young people in lower income areas of London to provide additional music opportunities and to enhance their music education. The programme of activities and support that we offer is continually being developed but currently includes:
- Recording Studio Experience (ages 11-24).
- A 1-1 Music Mentoring Programme (ages 16-24)
- The Grit School (6-week industry crash-course, ages 16-24)
- Songwriting Competitions (ages 11-18)
