“I never used to go out and do anything, and now I am here every single week. It’s boosted my confidence big time.” James
“I have learnt how to more accurately express my emotions while playing, which has in turn allowed me to put more passion into a piece of music.” Conan
“When I first started coming to Rock Up I’d sit there with my head down, whispering a song, I’d keep stopping and saying I was no good. That was ages ago and now, well, the last time I came here, I taught my sister how to play a song. That’s amazing – I’ve come so far.”
What is Rock Up:
We offer young people in challenging circumstances a range of ways to develop their musical talents and interests in a social setting.
Rock Up was a rock, pop and DJ music project for young people in Lowestoft which offered lots of different ways of getting into music. It was aimed at helping our students, from complete beginners to experienced musicians, to develop their own musical interests, skills and abilities.
During weekly sessions, our young people had the chance to pick up an instrument and play, receive one-to-one tuition with our talented music tutors, access online tutorials, take part in band practice with other young musicians, take part in public performances and digital showcases or work towards an Arts Award.
Who is Rock Up for:
Rock Up was part of our programme for young people and made available to members of Colville House Youth Club in Lowestoft.
When & Where did Rock Up happen:
Rock up ran between 2014 and 2017, during which we delivered weekly music workshops in Colville House Youth Club, Lowestoft.
