Inclusic set to give Wolverhampton youth, lockdown boost.
An exciting new music project has just been given the green light to go ahead in Wolverhampton, offering young people the chance to write songs and express themselves about their experiences of lockdown.
Backed by funding from Youth Music, Inclusic (formerly Rockschool Music Ltd) will deliver online music workshops, with a view to moving to face to face work once restrictions are eased, to young people from 4 community centres in the city. Penn Hall SEN school and a group made up of students from the Wolverhampton Music Service will also take part. The aim of the project is to promote positive mental health and well being in it’s participants and give them the chance to talk about life in 2020.
The students will be given top class coaching from professional musicians and will have the chance to create their music in bands on live instruments, and using cutting edge music technology. The project is set to start in January and will run for 12 weeks culminating in a recording of Wolverhampton’s very own Youth Lockdown Album. The album will then be performed live at a concert, either online, or to a live audience, if restrictions at the time allow.
