JukeBox is a new music-making opportunity for young musicians

8th April 2021, 9:17am | By olliephipps |

JukeBox is a new music-making opportunity for musicians aged 8-18 of any level, welcoming all instruments and abilities, supported by Wiltshire Music Connect.  It is aimed at young musicians who live in the northern / north-eastern parts of the county of Wiltshire, as it was identified that there were too few opportunities in this local area and many young people were having to travel out of area to access music-making opportunities.  The specific aim of the club is to inspire young musicians to improve their music performance and improvisation skills and, by exploring different styles of music, learn how to apply those music skills.

 

JukeBox, was originally intended to offer a 2-day workshop in a local venue 3 times per year during the half term holidays, however due to Covid, it has been run virtually during the two half-term breaks this current academic year.  There has been some really positive feedback from the young people who have already attended the two virtual workshops held to date:

 

‘I got to play music that I wouldn’t have chosen myself and really enjoyed it.’

‘The variety was interesting’

‘JukeBox is a really well put together package’

 

We are pleased to announce that the next workshop is being held virtually during the Whitsun half term holidays.  Full details are available on the JukeBox website – https://www.jukeboxmusicclub.org.uk/.
