Youth Music Mentees (Camden, London)

We are looking for young disabled musicians aged 15-25 living, studying or working in the London Borough of Camden to take part in our exciting new mentoring programme.

You will get the opportunity to work with one of three music mentors for 10 hours (over 5 weeks), with support from our music technologist.  Our mentors are all highly experienced disabled musicians.

The mentor programme will help you:

*Set goals
*Encourage areas of talent
*Build your confidence
*Develop you as an artist
* Support your progression in music

Whether you play an instrument, sing, use Assistive Music Technology or compose, either as a solo artist or as a band or collective, the mentoring programme could support you (for example in highlighting areas for development, making connections and networking, setting up your own gigs or music installations, broadening your existing influences or listening, widening your audience, career development and personal development).

This FREE opportunity is open to young disabled musicians working, living or studying in the Camden borough who:
*Are aged 15-25
*Play a musical instrument (including Assistive Music Technology such as Soundbeam or switches), or sing or compose music
*Have a keen interest in their own development as an artist
*Are considering music either as a career or as a route to personal development, or both
*Are either a solo artist or a group
*Are passionate about music!
