COVID-19 update from MUSINC
After nearly 5 months of our music sessions being either on hold or being led online (which is a challenge!) we are really looking forward to getting back to as close to normal as possible from September onwards.
We have been working very hard on making sure our health and safety guidelines around returning to work with COVID-19 comply with government advice and that all projects have a thorough risk assessment in place.
We are working with our colleagues and partners to work out our procedures for sessions and will be communicating these to participants, parents/guardians and support staff prior to sessions beginning.
In the meantime, we are running alternative activities and online tuition to keep young people making music over this period. Check out our activities page for more info!
If you are a young person, or work with a young person who is interested in music, contact us to see how we can support your musical development.
We hope to hear from you via firstname.lastname@example.org or any of our social media links if you have any queries or would like to get in touch.
MUSINC (yes, that’s right, not music inc, its MUSINC!) provides access to high quality music making for young people in the Tees Valley.
We know that young people can bring about positive change in their lives and the lives of those around them by getting involved in making music. Therefore we work with some of those most in need – young people (age 10-24) living in challenging circumstances in the local authority areas of Middlesbrough, Stockton, Hartlepool and Redcar and Cleveland.
We run several open access music groups for young people, we deliver intervention projects within particular settings, and we support music leaders by providing training and networking opportunities.
We are also able to offer a limited number of free places for 1:1 music tuition. This can take place either face to face in Redcar or Stockton, or online. Please contact us to find out if you are eligible to access free tuition.
We are funded by the National Charity Youth Music and are proud to be founding members of the Alliance for a Musically Inclusive England (AMIE). Find out more about AMIE here.
