We believe that our work is more than just music. In everything we do, we aim to help learners achieve, master new artistry, and develop life skills. We know it can be hard for learners to voice the issues and pressures that are relevant to them in their current environment. lyric writing/Music has proven to be a therapeutic tool like no other, allowing learners time to reflect inwards on who they are, and what their story is. With the encouragement and a constant positive role model in any of our staff team, this is the same whether in a prison or in the community.
We offer bespoke projects for organisations wanting to use music to engage underserved communities. Using talented musicians, facilitators and people with lived experience the young people will leave sessions full of confidence and a great sense of achievement whatever level they come to a session at.
