We are looking for someone to join us for our music studio project we run for young people in care based in Redbridge.
What we do
Every Friday from 4:30pm to 7:30pm we run a music studio project where young people get to learn how to create music in a recording studio environment. The idea of our sessions is that young people get to use the studio and creation of music as a form of therapy.
Our sessions are very fun, though can be highly involving as we work with young people who often go through a range of complex needs such as
death of parent
at risk or involved in gangs,
victim of sexual abuse
That being said as a group we are really able to engage these young people, where the sessions end up being extremely fun, as while we talk with the young people about their issues, we also engage them in fun music creating, where we also bring in other professional recording artists.
Who we are looking for
Our ideal candidate will have a
Track record of working with young people who have complex issues that often have social services involved.
Able to complete detailed weekly reporting on young people
Able to communicate with our partners if any issues of concern come up for young people
Woman who has a background in music, preferably in teaching singing
The hourly pay for is £15 per hour for 5 hours
Monthly reflective team sessions with an Educational Psychologist as a form of staff therapy
Working in a fast growing company with lots of exciting developments consistently happening
Get to be part of our Red Light Busking exhibitions
