Growth Spurt

We have been running an amazing Youth Music Project working with 150 young people in Hull and East Yorkshire to write, play, record and perform songs about their lives and experiences.

The project worked with both young musicians and non-musicians to demystify music making, give young people a voice and have lots of fun.

We worked with young people suffering mental health problems, young refugees, young carers, young people excluded from mainstream school and many more.

All the groups came together for a brilliant live performance of all the songs described by one parent as ‘The best gig I’ve been to in 20 years’.
