Strike A Chord

We co-produce sessions with young people that cover instrument playing, songwriting, music recording, production & performing live.

Strike A Chord

Strike A Chord is an exciting new opportunity for young people aged between 12-19 years old living in Waveney. (Aged 20-21? Email us to see how we can still support you).

You’ll be able to create, produce and record your own music both individually, and as a group, and all music will be put on streaming services.

We’ll also support you with building confidence and self-esteem to perform live, and how music benefits our mental health.

Throughout the project guitars, a drum kit, keyboards, percussion instruments and professional recording/performance equipment will be available.

A free instrument loan scheme to book instruments out will also be available towards the mid-term of the project.

We know that sometimes forms can be boring or take some time, so we’ve tried to make ours as simple as possible!

All though we now have a waiting list, please do join it so we can keep your contact details on file to notify you when any other opportunities become available.

The Junction, Lowestoft

The only requirement is that you are interested in making music whether that’s by singing or being able to play an instrument and live in Waveney (the choice of musical genre is entirely up to you).

Evening sessions will last 2-3 hours per week including both group work and 1 to 1 options running from Mid-May 2023 to March 2024.
