New music project announced for young people in Liverpool

Members of the project: Phoebe, Adam, Emily, James and Charlotte

MERSEYSIDE Youth Association (MYA) has announced the launch of a new music programme for local 12-25-year-olds. 

Supported by the National Foundation for Youth Music using funding from the National Lottery via Arts Council England, the Noise Project is open to local aspiring musicians of all backgrounds and abilities, providing a unique range of free activities, including one-to-one tuition, band development, creative mentoring and live performance.

Based at MYA’s purpose-built studio in Liverpool city centre, the project offers young people from all areas of Merseyside a safe, supportive environment to explore their musicality and meet like minds.

Project manager Garth Jones said: “With Paul McCartney making headlines still in 2018, our aim is to inspire and equip the next generation of Merseyside musicians to make their mark on the world.

“From rap to rock, from dance to drill – whatever you’re into, Noise is for you.”

Youth Music CEO Matt Griffiths says: “Merseyside has such a strong musical heritage in many genres. The Noise Project will support young musicians to develop personally and socially, as well as providing them with a high-quality space to develop their musical skills.”

Sessions run at Merseyside Youth Association on Hanover Street, from Tuesday to Friday. Time are set around young people’s commitments.
