Sound and music exploration for young people with neurological differences. A fun and interactive after-school music-making programme for young people aged 14+ that are on the autistic spectrum or who have additional learning needs such as ADHD.
Through regular online provision, sessions provide a space where participants can explore, collaborate and express themselves musically through improvisation, songwriting, music technology, instrumental performance and games.
The programme aims to support participants’ social development through building confidence and self-esteem whilst also supporting the development of friendships and support networks, which will be vital for those leaving education and transitioning into the community.
So far Sound Lab has taken the group on an eclectic journey; recording covers of pop songs, experimenting with food compositions, sharing the highs and lows of living in lockdown and devising a fictional music and arts festival! We’ve also been supporting participants to work towards accreditation through the Arts Award.
In addition to our regular online provision, we are also running our Sound Lab Summer Club during the summer holidays, a weekly programme of face-to-face music-making that will take place from Critchill School in Frome.
