🔊 Announcing our new project – Making Waves

Finding Rhythms are pleased to announce a brand new community project – ‘Making Waves’ – kicking off later this month. 

Based on Finding Rhythms’ reputation in providing effective music interventions, ‘Making Waves’ supports underserved people in the community by providing one-to-one weekly sessions with a professional producer. 

Over the course of 10, 1.5h sessions, participants are empowered to write and record their own music from our private studio space. Alongside this, learners have the opportunity to work towards a Prince’s Trust entry Level 3 award in Personal Development and Employability Skills and receive person-focussed mentoring support from our partner organisation, Trailblazers. 

It’s given me that drive. It’s something positive that I’m enjoying doing. It’s giving me that escapism from what I’m going through with the housing situation and the anxiety I’m going through. I leave here on a high. When I’m at work I’m counting down the hours until I leave and come here.
