What is Rock On:
Rock On is for young people who love their music – and want to make more of it.
If you’re in to rock and pop, or keen on DJ-ing, and aged 11 to 18, then Rock On offers all sorts of ways for you to play, from have-a-go sessions to one-to-one tuition and band practice.
You might be a complete beginner, or an experienced player – either way, Rock On is here to help you get more out of your music.
And at the same time, you’ll be getting more out of life – making music you’ll meet people with similar interests, make friends, and get to play together.
Rock On will also work in supported housing programmes, piloting new ways of engaging with families with school age children and young parents, their partners and babies. Music soothes, music binds; Rock On will explore ways of bringing people together through a shared love of music.
Rock On is delivered in partnership with Access Community Trust, Lowestoft, CYDS, (Young People Taking Action) in Leiston and Just 42 in Sutton Heath.
Designated Youth Workers from both organisations will be actively involved in the sessions and train with the professional music tutors to deliver Arts Awards; these increased skills, experience and knowledge will help sustain the project beyond its end date of December 2019.
