Beats and Bars (Round 2)

Beats and Bars (Round 2)

Following on from the extremely successful Round 1 of the Connexions / ESF project Beats and Bars, Round 2 was another rewarding project for Leicester’s NEET young people.

 

A group of 6 young people worked together to produce their own album and work towards an Arts Award Bronze. None of the young people had ever produced music, written lyrics, performed or recorded professionally so this course was the ideal introduction to the music industry.

 

This course was also a positive turning point for the young people, as they explored themes such as citizenship, relationships and responsibility in their music and vocals.

 

Many young people have progressed onto college courses, other vocational provision and other 2Funky Art’s programs as a result of this course. We love working with them and look forward to hearing what they come up with next!
