We are thrilled to announce that, in partnership with Serious Music, we are leading a new outreach learning programme. The pilot stage of the programme will be delivered to two of our wonderful partner schools, Queen Elizabeth’s School and St Aldhelm’s Academy. These schools are passionately engaged with music education and are driven by fantastically motivated and enthusiastic teachers.
We are so pleased to be collaborating with Serious, who are a very exciting company. Serious specialise in producing world class events, running diverse learning and participation projects and are one of the leading promoters of Jazz and Contemporary music in the UK.
This project aims to actively engage young people to make and play music. Within the local area there is already lots of provision for music workshops that focus on classical and jazz music. Our ambition in this project is to inspire young creatives to explore other genres of music, particularly popular music. Lighthouse are keen to inspire, encourage and support the writing, playing and production of contemporary music by young people, for young people.
We will be running another strand of this project in autumn, so check back here soon for information about how to get involved!
