Tune Into Your Potential
The European Social Fund
Making sure Europeans have the right skills for the right job is a big challenge, The European Social Fund funds organisations and projects which aim to improve the education and opportunities of the people in the area. Rewise created a music-based project which aimed to improve the skills and confidence of young unemployed people in Llanelli, Bridgend, Neath Port Talbot, and Swansea.
Tune Into Your Potential
This project involves a group of young people, 16-25 years old, creating their own song with the aim to build confidence and improve their soft and hard employability skills. With the help of our musically trained staff, participants were taught how to write songs, compose, and use industry standard music software in order to create a unique song about their hopes and dreams. The individuals also had the opportunity to try the latest digital instruments as-well-as more traditional ones to add to the instrumental of the song.
The participants used the creation and performance of music to boost self-expression and develop confidence. The idea’s foundation was built around the idea of how simple ideas can be created into a full-blown production; small steps into a larger life goal. At the end of the 5-day course, the participants gained skills through one to one support, professional/social connections, and a level 1 or level 2 qualification.
