Young Leaders

NTMEH have a number of young leaders who have been involved in Hub activities and projects, and have now gained paid employment with the hub, as well as getting valuable work experience in the arts and music education sector.

All young leaders go through a DBS check, safeguarding CPD and follow a 6 month internship programme. From sound engineering to stewarding at events and supporting musical ensembles, our young leaders are a vital part of our team.

We also offer support with career development and individual pathways to further training via other agencies such as UK Music. Contact us for further information on our young leaders programme.

“I have gained a lot more confidence and developed leadership skills that I never thought I would have.”

Music Centre

Whatever your level of skill may be, there is a group of players you can join and develop with at your standard.


Standing Upright Project

The project aims to develop a wide range of music and arts-based skills and to build the confidence of each young person involved.


Brass in Schools

North Tyneside Brass in Schools is a free after school programme that offers beginner primary school children the opportunity to take part in a brass band.


Steel Pans

North Tyneside Steel Band (NTSB) recently celebrated their 30th birthday and are one of the most active steel band groups in the North East.  They love performing at public events, with recent highlights of performances at the London and Rotterdam Carnivals.



NTMEH has a number of volunteers who support the work of the hub on a regular basis. We can also facilitate work experience placements and put you in touch with other local arts organisations who can help.

NTMEH is currently working with other hubs and partners to develop and improve opportunities for young people to have their say.
