About the project

All In Music provides music opportunities for young people in Southend and surrounding areas. Established for over 15 years, the project is funded by Youth Music and designed and delivered by Southend YMCA to 11-25-year-olds.


Our experienced tutors are skilled and creative musicians who aim to provide fun, informal tuition in an inspiring and safe environment. Delivering both one-to-one and group sessions (bands or ensembles), we strive to develop participants’ knowledge, skills and confidence in both music and their daily lives.

How it can help

Whilst developing young people through engaging teaching and music mentoring, we also provide regular performance opportunities in the form of youth-led gigs and showcases at local venues in the Southend area. A range of instrument and music production tuition is available, including singing, songwriting, guitar, bass, drums, piano, rapping, recording, mixing and beat-making.


During the life of our project, we’ve worked with hundreds of young people from complete novices to skilled professionals. No previous musical experience is necessary and we are SEN/disability-friendly.


Sessions are delivered at our All In Music studio in central Southend - a fully equipped and acoustically treated recording studio and rehearsal room with air conditioning. Our studio is located at:


Southend YMCA

85 Ambleside Drive

Southend On Sea




Tuition is free, though eligibility criteria applies.


We also offer knowledge-sharing sessions for community musicians in the area – contact us to find out more.
