Staying In Doesn’t Mean No Rockin’ Out:

There is no reason for the lock down to stop young people from rocking out and making music with others thanks to the new FREE online music workshops being offered by MAP (Music Arts Project).

Earlier this year MAP received funding from Youth Music to deliver ‘Keep It Live’; a series of workshops based at their new Live Lounge facility at Wayland Academy.

The sessions involved learning songs, forming bands and performing in public.

Due to the current social distancing measures, the MAP team have now moved the project online to the Keep It Live (MAP) Facebook page. Young people from across the region aged 12 to 18 are invited to visit the site to find out more, sign up, join in the music making and prepare for a celebration gig for when the community can come together again.

As part of the on line sessions, participants will be able to select the songs they want to learn, team up with others to form on-line bands and receive individual tips and guidance from MAP’s highly professional and experienced music leaders. The course is open to individuals and bands and will include exploring a variety of musical genres and styles. It will also include online tuition in stage lighting and sound technology. This course is ideal for musicians who already play an instrument and now wish to take the next steps of learning songs and performing with others.

Eugene Pryer, chairman of MAP, said:

We have been delighted that in these uncertain times Youth Music have allowed us to redevelop our project so that it can be delivered online. All the MAP staff have been very proactive developing an exciting free programme that will keep young musicians positively engaged and allow them to develop skills and have a live show to work towards.”
