Strike A Chord

Strike A Chord is an exciting new opportunity for young people aged between 12-19 years old living in Waveney.


You’ll be able to create, produce and record your own music both individually, and as a group for our end of project album, and all music will be put on streaming services along with a professionally made music video.

We’ll also support you with building confidence and self-esteem to perform live, and how music benefits our mental health.

Throughout the project guitars, a drum kit, keyboards, percussion instruments and professional recording/performance equipment will be available.

A free instrument loan scheme to book instruments out will also be available towards the mid-term of the project.

We know that sometimes forms can be boring or take some time, so we’ve tried to make ours as simple as possible!
