My Tunes 2 continues the legacy of My Tunes, with Actiontrack and young people in four Pupil Referral Units working together to make and record music in a range of styles from May 2014 to May 2016.
Following an initial My Tunes project culminating in 2014, Take Art has secured funding for its follow-up, My Tunes 2, with the Pupil Referral Units (PRUs) in Somerset.
Take Art and Actiontrack Performance Company will be working with the four area schools in Taunton Deane, Sedgemoor, South Somerset and Mendip to make music with 75 young people who have been excluded from mainstream schools over the next two years. A variety of music styles including, rap, rock, beatbox, grime, dubstep and soul will be offered, as well as recording opportunities at the Actiontrack recording studio in Taunton.
My Tunes 2 will also be expanded to include the Targeted Youth Support team who work with vulnerable 15 to 19 year olds. This is an exciting development and contributes to our ambition to develop a countywide strategy for working through music with vulnerable children and young people. As part of this we are working with the Somerset Music Education Hub – Sound Foundation Somerset.
This work has been made possible through a grant from Youth Music and financial support from four area PRU schools.
