Exciting opportunity for young service users interested in music

Published: 23/09/2015

An opportunity has arisen for young people with mental health conditions to get involved in an exciting new music project.


Wavelength is a community-based, creative music project for young people aged 14-25 across Birmingham and Solihull with mental health conditions. The project gives creative musical opportunities to 20 new members each year, offering:

  • One-to-one sessions with professional musicians, creating original songs and music
  • Group music and songwriting sessions, giving the chance to connect with other participants
  • Recording opportunities, including contributing original music to a project CD
  • Social events and performance opportunities

The project also provides support opportunities for parents and families, and training for professional musicians and mental health workers.

Wavelength are currently accepting applications for the first year of the project. Applications must be completed by both the young person interested plus their parent and/or key mental health worker. All participants must live in either Birmingham or Solihull and be able to access community-based group sessions. You can find an application form attached below.

Wavelength includes all types of participants, from those keen but with no previous experience to highly talented and competent musicians. If you would like to discuss the project in more details, please email info@quench-arts.co.uk.

Wavelength is run by Quench Arts C.I.C in partnership with our Trust and Birmingham Children’s Hospital. You can find out more on their website, or you can keep up to date on Facebook or Twitter.
