Oswestry Youth Music Collective

Oswestry Youth Music Collective

Qube’s brand-new music project Oswestry Youth Music Collective has been funded by ‘Youth Music’, to provide creative music opportunities for young people in Oswestry and the surrounding area.

The project will run as a ten week block, one session per week, starting in September. There will 10 places available for young people aged 13-17.

Participants will have the opportunity to develop their musical skills and build confidence through a variety of experimental music activities based on their own interests, and across a range of genres, to include: jamming and improvisation, vocal, percussion and guitar workshops, song-writing and recording, stage-craft and performance. Importantly, the project provides the space and support for young people to work creatively together, developing a musical style as part of a collective group.

All participants will also be invited to work towards their Discover and Explore or bronze-level Arts Award, a nationally recognised qualification. For more information – www.artsaward.org.uk

The project is managed by Qube and led by Musician Barry Edwards and will also include guest musicians and industry professionals.  Ian and Colleen Cruise-Taylor, with a wealth of experience in education and youth work, will provide pastoral support.
