About Finding Rhythms

We deliver collaborative music-making courses for those at risk of (re)offending either within the prison estate or in the community. Our creative courses utilise music industry professionals and coaches, who empower marginalised and disadvantaged individuals to improve their lives. Our distinctive approach gives beneficiaries confidence, self-belief and soft skills preparing them for a better future in society and supporting desistance.

Our culturally relevant practitioners use high quality music production equipment and modern production values to provide meaningful opportunities. Their expertise and emotional intelligence ensure that a unique and untapped sense of creativity is coaxed from participants, empowering them in a distinct way. We are proud of the fact that we have created over 50 albums of original music, a catalogue which distinctly separates us from other organisations both in terms of quality and quantity of content.

I will stop offending and look for other ways to use my time and earn money. I will aim higher now I can see how far I've come in the past 2 weeks
