Noteable – Youth Music project

In April 2019, Noteable, our latest Youth Music funded project started. It is a 3-year programme of work targeting young people from Leicester and Leicestershire.

The aim of the project is to target young people with challenging life circumstances and those who may have additional needs and need support to reach their potential.

On Monday nights 4-6pm we are targeting young female musicians, with our girls-only session, led by our female music leaders including

Leicester-based musician Sharon Collier – multi instrumentalist and singer

Jenny Hibbard poet and sound artist

Yulander Davis, singer and producer

 

On Tuesday evenings – 4-7pm- our session is aimed at young musicians with higher support needs, such as a having a learning disability, an Autistic Spectrum Disorder, or young musicians who are at risk of offending or on orders from Youth Offending Services.

These sessions are led by the one and only I-mitri  and assisted by local musicians such as Geno Ayres-Lynch and Rowan, who come with expansive skillsets as singers, producers, contemporary musicians and classical musicians.

We also run the infamous and increasingly popular Friday night sessions – 4-7pm. These sessions are for young people who are from inner city areas or the outer estates of Leicester. Aimed at young people who maybe ready to takw the next steps into the music scene.  We provide a space to work on your music skills and produce mixtapes and videos for social media and working towards preparing for and playing gigs at local music venues.

These sessions are led by local Leicester Hip-hop legend Naji-Wavey

with support from urban artists such as:

Stanza,

Miss Fire,

Lloyd Luther

Geno Ayres-Lynch and many more!
