Young Music Makers Project
We are so excited to announce the launch of our new funded project, "Young Music Makers!"
Young Music Makers, a CatStrand Young Creatives Project, is part of The Scottish Government’s Youth Music Initiative (YMI) which is administered by Creative Scotland. The YMI creates access to high quality music making opportunities, enables young people to achieve their potential in or through music and supports the development of the sector for the benefit of young people.
Young Music Makers is a year long project including private and group music lessons in Ukulele, guitar, piano. We will also be running family musical taster workshops, singing and vocal lessons and musical technology workshops.
Young Music Makers goes beyond just music lessons. We will also be offering young musicians the opportunity to develop their skills and kick start their musical career through mentoring, group workshops, performances, and collaborative projects. We believe that building a community of young musicians is essential for their growth and success.
If you know a young musician who is eager to learn and grow in their craft, we encourage you to get involved! Stay tuned for more information on how to enrol and let's make some music together.
