Groups of up to 8 young people will work with one or 2 of our music leaders for 90 minutes per week for 10 weeks across a big school term.
Small group mentoring is for students in KS3 & KS4. The programme is young-person led and designed to support and enhance young people’s social, personal and musical development. We work with the schools to ensure the programme is targeted to young people facing challenging circumstances.
All young people that take part in Music Labs will face challenges around general mental health and wellbeing, anxiety, stress, low socio-economic background, experience of bullying, struggling with attendance and low academic achievement. We’ve built the programme to achieve outcomes in line with these circumstances.
In order for young people to feel safe, trusted and able to grow as a group, our experience has shown that it’s important to offer small group mentoring to groups of young people that exhibit similar behaviours.

Our work in APS’s and in Hospital Education across Gloucestershire has proven that music is an effective way to engage and build confidence in young people who struggle with learning, behaviour, and poor mental health.

“My concentration skills are better now, and I’m much happier. I really enjoy it and now I’m doing my main Arts Award. He helps me write songs, I can never find words and the words that come out are really bad, but … he’s helped my confidence a lot.”
