Putting Music first …..

We are Music is a registered charity helping people through popular music. There are two components of our work:-

We are Music – We strive to provide for the advancement of young people through music into the music industry, and education. For young people between sixteen and twenty five we provide fully funded :-

  • Get Known -Live performance videos to showcase the artist to aid them to obtain bookings for gigs
  • Hamford Studio -Studio space to work, develop material extend their skills and record digital singles.
  • Support as an Event promoter- providing live gigs and Landslide Festivals for young artists to perform.
  • Development support for young artists providing them with useful information through Industry contacts.

Rock School 

  • We support young people from nine to eighteen providing regular band sessions, led by Music Leaders, three days per week, during term times in our Harwich facility and Jaywick Martello Tower.
  • We also provide, across Tendring, six week afterschool sessions in local Primary Schools. These are delivered by two Music Leaders and culminate in a band performance.

Through Youth Music funding we provide an equipped studio for creative writing and recording with a range of DAW software.  A studio engineer is provided to work alongside the young musicians and the project encourages the production and distribution of a digital single release. The project has links with industry professionals and practical studio courses will pass on professional studio tips.

Live performance videos GET KNOWN are produced to enable the bands and artists to provide a showcase, primarily used to gain performance opportunities from venues.

The Rock School was set up by local people, who obtained a building, raised funds and built the rehearsal rooms and studios. The charity has run for ten years and former students now teach and run the sessions. Students won the MFY National Partnership Awards for Rock Pop and Urban in 2013 and 2014,  and bands played at the Music for Youth Proms in the Royal Albert Hall in 2016, 2014, and 2012. In 2018 two acts were invited to visit Biberach Germany to play in an “English Week” Concert.
