musinc works with musicians, music and arts groups and organisations that support young people to:

  • develop and commission music activities
  • enable musicians and those who support young people to develop the skills they need to help young people grow and develop through music.

Our focus is on those most in need - young people (age 10 - 18 years) living in challenging circumstances in the local authority areas of Middlesbrough, Stockton, Hartlepool and Redcar and Cleveland. We believe that young people can make positive changes in their lives by getting involved in music.

We are asking a question: 'How do we ensure equity and quality in terms of the musical engagement of young people living in challenging circumstances?' Work with us. Learn with us. Help us build the answer.

Music making opportunities for Middlesbrough’s Young People

We are looking for young people aged 6-18 to join our music groups which are re-starting face to face after the COVID break.


Our programme is designed to support young people facing barriers. If you work with young people who enjoy music and you think that taking part in a music activity would support their well-being and personal development then we would be delighted to welcome them into our programme.


Activities include:

Bandjam for ages 6-18

We have 4 groups (minis, beginners, juniors and seniors) for different ages and abilities. Bandjam offers young people everything from general musicianship to playing or singing in a rock/pop band together. Led by professional music leaders, the sessions covers guitars, drums and vocals.


Minis 4pm – 4.45pm

Beginners 5pm – 5.45pm

Juniors & Seniors 6pm – 8pm

Inclusive music group for ages 16-25

Learn how to use music technology, as well as play instruments, sing and/or create music together in a group. Supported by two professional music leaders, this group welcomes neurotypical and neurodiverse young people.

Mondays 5.30pm – 7.30pm

Singing 7 week course for ages 8-13

Sing together and develop your singing skills with the support of professional singer and coach Nick Dixon. The group will work towards a performance at Middlesbrough Town Hall on 13th December!

Mondays, 5pm – 6.30pm 1st November to 13th December 2021

 Other opportunities:

- We can design a bespoke music project specifically for your group of young people tailored to their needs.

- We can offer 1:1 support/music lessons either in Middlesbrough or online with one of our tutors.

Costs: We have an inclusive fee structure in place which is supported by grant funding, therefore we can offer free places for young people where financial barriers would prevent them accessing otherwise.

Young people are welcome to attend a taster session for any of the activities. If access to sessions is a barrier please contact us to discuss.
