Free music project launching for young people in Abbots Langley

20th May 2015

The Music Box is giving young people aged 14-19 the opportunity to work with a professional musician for 8 weeks, where they can try their hand at song writing, music production, DJing and mixing - with all of the equipment provided free as part of the sessions.

Supported by Youth Connexions, the project will be an excellent opportunity for those who are passionate about music to get some hands-on experience, as well as build their skills and confidence.

Elaine Johnson Community Arts Development Officer said “This is a great way for young people who love music to get their foot in the door, working with an experienced musician and having a clear vision to work towards. Having sessions outside of school and college hours will also make it very accessible.”

The Music Box will form the final instalment of Three Rivers District Council’s Youth Arts programme funded by the Royal Opera House Bridge, with highly popular film and mixed arts projects having already taken place in South Oxhey and Rickmansworth - celebrating the creativity of young people.

Runs every Thursday from 11 June – 30 July

6 – 8pm

Abbots Langley Community Centre, Manor House Grounds, The High Street
