Music makers hit the studio.

YOUNG people from North Warwickshire have been spending the summer making music.

They have worked alongside professionals from the music industry in workshops for singing, song writing, record production, filming and event management.

It has been organised by the Three Villages Rural Youth Project for 11-19-year-olds from Hurley, Wood End and Piccadilly, who have now compiled their own music single, ready to be released on-line.

Project development officer Kirsty Lowrie said: "This has been an amazing, unique opportunity for them. Music is an excellent tool for engaging with young people and they will learn a host of new skills that will stay with them throughout their lives.

"Members of this group have put together their own lyrics, arrangement and production, something they have never experienced before. Over the weeks they have grown so much in confidence and skill and it has been an amazing experience to see them grow in such a short space of time."

More than 40 young people have taken part in the workshops, which have included weekly practice sessions at the Robbana Studios in Birmingham. Their original single "Atmosphere" will be performed at a local venue next month, prior to being available on-line.

The Rural Youth Project is funded by the North Warwickshire LEADER programme, with support from Warwickshire Community and Voluntary Action.
