My Pockets Music

My Pockets Music is a song writing project working with young people to improve their wellbeing through making music. The project is aimed at young people with mental health problems or who are under some kind of mental health pressure. My Pockets work with the young people to write songs, shoot videos and then perform for each other, friends and family at a live event.

We love this project. Music really has the power to transform people, most of the participants have no musical ability at the start of the project and by the end they are up on stage, sharing their stories through songs and receiving massive cheers from the crowd. It’s brilliant.

The project is supported by Spirit of 2012, Youth Music and Mind.
