Music Matters

Music Matters is a two year project that aims to develop young people musically, socially and personally through learning how to play instruments, performing in front of audiences, improving creativity and working in groups. The project is funded by Youth Music and supported by the North Lincolnshire Music Education Hub.

As part of the Music Matters project some young people will have the opportunity to achieve their Arts Award, a nationally recognised qualification from Trinity College London.
