Our Music and Creative Arts Curricula
1. Group music Classes
Every Friday we play musicianship games, teach studio lessons, and host musical sharings and jam sessions to get creativity and connection flowing. Our students can choose to learn flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, guitar, violin, cello, piano, or drums from our talented professional music tutors. Established in 2016, we run this in conjunction with the Refugee Council UK’s Children’s Section. We incorporate everything into our sessions, from improvisation and jamming to devising and performing.
2. raw (Recording, arranging, writing)
Our RAW sessions take place every Thursday. Young people can record, arrange and write their own tracks with our awesome music production team and in-house session musicians. Just another way we are encouraging these awesome teens to explore and develop their own voices and get them out into the world.
3. ONE-TO-ONE ADVANCED LESSONS
Group sessions work for some, but not all. As such, we offer one-to-one instrumental lessons for those who prefer to work quietly, or for our more advanced students who want to develop their playing further.
4. creative arts therapy
When we recognised the need for additional forms of mental health services to be readily accessible to young people processing trauma, we set to work identifying how we could develop our own integrated creative arts therapy service to better serve our community. Lead by drama therapists weekly sessions incorporate a vast range of art forms, from visual art and photography to shadow puppetry, movement, and drama!
