All In Music (AIM), Southend YMCA’s long-established youth music project, is presenting a free virtual open weekend for the public on Friday 7th - Sunday 9th May 2021.
All In Music will be hosting a series of live talks, workshops and exciting events across the weekend, so that external young people, parents, carers and youth practitioners can sample some of the services that AIM provides to the young people of Southend and surrounding areas.
Established 15 years ago, the All In Music project delivers tuition, resources and support to young people aged between 11 and 25 years of age. It aims to improve skills and confidence through the power of music to those who may not otherwise have the opportunity. The project’s Southend-based music studio has a dedicated staff with a wide experience of working within the music industry.
All In Music tutor Tom Eatherton said: “We’re delivering this open weekend in preparation for Covid-19 restrictions being fully lifted. We’ve been limited to online music sessions for the past year, so it’s very exciting to be able to finally re-open our doors to the young people of Southend-on-Sea. We endeavour to increase the local awareness of our project and highlight the great work that All In Music does for the community.”
