Young people aged 14-19 will be offered the opportunity to take part in a range of music activities; from instrumental and technical tuition to song-writing, new technology, DJ and rapping skills, sound engineering and entrepreneurship through Scottish Music Centre’s Music Plus programme.
Music Plus links enthusiastic young people with music industry professionals who’ll offer guidance, skills and knowledge of the music industry from song writing to sound engineering, providing the opportunity to progress a career in the industry.
Music Plus activities are tailored to the specific interests of the individual young person and include practical one-to-one advice and support as well as hands-on learning sessions. Run by a team of Scottish music industry professionals, from musicians, songwriters and composers to live music promoters, band managers and entrepreneurs, Music Plus covers all genres of music from hip-hop to opera and all aspects of the business.
Originally piloted in Glasgow, Fife and Highlands, Music Plus covers the whole of Scotland thanks to support from the Scottish Government Youth Music Initiative (YMI) programme which is administered by Creative Scotland. YMI intends to create access to high quality music making opportunities for young people aged 0 – 25, particularly for those that would not normally have the chance to participate, enable young people to achieve their potential in or through music making and support the development of the youth music sector for the benefit of young people. Music Plus has also attracted match funding from the Robertson Trust.
