Young musicians on the right path

Youth clubs in Milton Keynes are putting young people on the path to realising their dreams and learning new skills.

Jonathans Youth Project in Coffee Hall is launching a new music studio, where young people aged 13-19 years can have the opportunity to create their own lyrics and record their own music.

The project, funded by Milton Keynes Council, is part of a wider strategy to develop music as a way of engaging young people in a positive activity, which helps them to explore their creativity and acquire new skills.

As the project develops, the youth workers will be looking at ways for young people to develop new skills through practice and performances at local community fun days and other community events.

As part of the wider strategy to bring music to young people in Milton Keynes, neighbouring Beanhill Youth Club is now offering free music lessons for interested young people who attend the club.

Those who are interested in the music lessons will be encouraged to link into the new recording studio at Jonathans and enjoy using it with support from the youth workers there.
