Ever fancied learning the drums, playing guitar or dabbling in song writing, singing or music production?

Big Noise project

Volunteers Tom Hall and Sam Taylor promote the Big Noise project

The Trinity Holistic Centre is running a series of free music workshops for young people who have been affected by cancer or other long term conditions.

Big Noise workshops will be held throughout August and September to encourage 10 to 24-year-olds to try something new and meet others their age with similar health issues.

Business manager Heather McLean said: “We are very excited about this new project which gives young people the chance to try everything from playing the guitar or drums to trying their hand at being a DJ or songwriter.

“We hope it will encourage them to support each other as well as giving them the opportunity to develop a fun new skill!”

The workshops will be split into different age groups and are being held with the support of the National Foundation for Youth Music, Apollo Arts, Arts Council England and Musinc – the Teesside Musical Inclusion Resource.

All equipment will be provided but places are limited so book quickly to avoid disappointment.

The first sessions take place on Thursday 20 August. For a full timetable visit southtees.nhs.uk/trinity
