Our Youth Music Funded Projects

We’ve made great progress in our Youth Music funded projects since the start of the academic year. Our Breaking Barriers Early Years project has been making great headway in the Riverside area of North Tyneside, with the support of our partners Children’s North East and the North Tyneside School Improvement Service Early Years Team.

The Standing Upright project is also going from strength to strength, working to support young people aged 12-24 on their creative journey. The project hosted a fantastic week of workshops in February half term.

Young people took part in wellbeing, song writing, music technology and skills development sessions, and listened to a range of talks from music industry specialists.

They have also made a film celebrating the project, and you can listen to their latest live recordings on their new Soundcloud here. To find out more, or to get involved, email standing.upright@ntlp.org.uk.
