The Players Academy project has been successful for a number of years, evolving and improving with each round of funding. The project enables children and young people CYP) to learn how to play musical instruments, write songs, and record/produce music. This most recent project builds on the success of previous years, by incorporating music sessions for the community as well as regular sessions at the local high school.
Musicians from Make Some Noise provide quality tutorials and support alongside our team, with the aim to support CYP to improve musically, increase confidence and self-esteem, and demonstrate their learned skills through a variety of performances.
During Summer 2021, community sessions took place within our hub in Middleport, and from September 2021 we have offered weekly sessions at the Co-Op Academy (Tunstall).
