All About the Band

All About the Band, Music, Performance, Young people


All About the Band

All About the Band was an 18 month project to support young musicians living in Southwark aged 13 to 18 years old to produce, record, and perform their own music professionally.

The project offered participants training in all aspects of music, from composition, recording, production to singing, playing and performing live.

Giving their musical expertise and knowledge were the All About the Band tutors from the London Centre of Contemporary Music, and Groundwork Southwark. All of the tutors are active musicians and performers and were able to impart on to the young participants on the project, the skills they needed to develop their music and musical careers.

The documentary

Hear first hand from the students, and the tutors, what it meant to them to be on the project and what they gained from it.

Live performance

Take a look at the first live performance of the project at the Culture Space, Canada Water Library. After the first performance course at Peckham Library, the course was repeated at Canada Water Library, Dulwich Library, and the London Centre of Contemporary Music.

The Legacy

Although the project has come to an end, our partners, The London Centre of Contemporary Music (LCCM) have continued to deliver the performance aspect of the project; recognising and supporting the overwhelming young talent in the borough. This course started the beginning of June 2015 and will run on the same format as the original project. Students will also benefit from LCCM's fully equipped studios and rehearsal rooms, as well as tuition from accomplished musicians.

Future opportunities

The All About the Band project was funded by Youth Music and delivered in partnership with London Centre of Contemporary Music, Groundwork London, Sound Technology - Reason 7, and The Albany.
