What’s On January 2011: New Youth Music Mentoring Project

Following the success of the Youth Music Mentoring Programme run over the summer, Cloth Cat will be running a new project during January and February 2011. Supported by Leeds City Council, Cloth Cat is looking for people aged 13 to 25 who are looking to work with others to form a band. “We don’t expect expertise on your chosen instrument, but a basic level would be required. It will be run down at Old Chapel Studios (Holbeck), our partners on this project, and the young people will be trained by qualified and fully CRB’d music mentors to take them through the whole process of forming a functioning band from song writing, stage craft, marketing and recording to the opportunity of playing a live gig. There’ll also be industry experts dropping by to give you their specialised advice.”  The scheme is free and will be run over consecutive Saturdays, 12.00-3.00pm and during the half-term break, so if you or someone you know would like to take advantage of this unique experience then please get in touch. You can call the Cloth Cat office on 0113 244 2773 or e-mail mike@clothcatleeds.org.uk
