Get Started with Music - opportunity for 16-25 year olds in Cheltenham

‘Get Started in Music’ programme in partnership with The Music Works is running from the 9th-13th May 2016. It will be based at Gloucestershire Music Makers, Studio 240, CCP, 340 High Street, Cheltenham, GL50 3JF. 

The Get Started in Music programme is aimed at young people who are 16-25 and not engaged in education, employment or training*.

*they are still eligible if working less than 16 hours or in education less than 14 hours a week as long as it doesn’t interfere with the programme

The programme allows young people to gain experience in song-writing, music production and recording through practical workshops. They will visit a professional studio and meet artists, work in groups to produce their own piece of music they can showcase at the end and will gain a relevant arts-based qualification.

This programme is for anyone who is interested in music but also would like to build on their confidence and motivation.  Each young person will receive 3 months support to move into education, training or employment.

If you are working with a young person who would like to find out more about the music industry, we would very much like to hear from you.

Interested young people will be invited to attend a Taster session on the 3rd May if they are Prince’s Trust eligible. Each young person will be made aware of timings when booked on. Once invited, each young person will be given specific details.

Attending the Taster session does not guarantee a place on the course. The Taster session forms part of our recruitment process, allowing the young person to find out more about the course, and in conjunction with The Prince’s Trust, to decide if the course is suitable.  Places will be given to those young people who can demonstrate readiness for the programme and a commitment to work with the Trust and develop their skills towards further education, employment or training.
