Join us in June to celebrate the musical talent of young people

Making Tracks C7, guitar lesson

We’d love for you to join us to help celebrate the musical achievements of young people in Lambeth next month. As part of Making Tracks, our exciting programme of work in the community in partnership with The Prince’s Trust Fairbridge Programme, Kennington Centre, you are invited to join us to enjoy original music written and performed by NEET (Not in Education, Employment or Training) local young people.

So, please do join us at St Marks on Thursday 18th June at 7pm (visiting info below).

Making Tracks invite, Thursday 18th June 2015

You can hear an examples of the high quality of original music created by the young people involved in Making Tracks here and see three short films made during a project here.

Over just 4 days, led by The Irene Taylor Trust’s project team, the young people taking part will learn how to play instruments, form a band and write their own original songs. The group will also be supported by a musician from our ex-prisoner programme Sounding Out.  After taking part in the 5-day intensive project, the young people will be given the opportunity to hone their new-found skills in twice-weekly follow-on sessions. Suitable progression routes and further development opportunities for the individual young people will be identified.

The project venue has been kindly provided by St Mark’s.
