In 2014 Rock school was due to end following a lack of funding. One Voice applied for funding to ensure this project could continue offering out of school provision.
Young people were able to develop their skills musically and socially with peer support and tuition with termly showcase events being held with them performing as a band.
Long term funding was secured by One Voice from the peoples health trust and this project was chosen to receive a recognition award from the Health Lottery this was a great achievement to be chosen as one of 5 from 1300 projects. The Award was presented by Simon Cowell at a celebration tea party in London.
The project has since grown and has been renamed Total Music the weekly sessions continue to be offered for age 11 to 17 at Oasis academy Wednesdays 6-8 pm. Showcase events are held, the young people perform at local events and we are looking at different types of music provision within the area. Total music has continued support from Oasis Academy through the provision of a room free of charge and also from Blossom way sports and Social club who offer a venue free of charge for the showcase events. One voice seek and gain funding for this project to ensure its continuation,for more information about these sessions please contact us.
