Music 4 U provides a wide range of artistic opportunities to participants from varying backgrounds, including those affected by physical and learning disability, from areas of social and financial deprivation and who are on the Autistic spectrum as well as those not affected by these challenges.
Founded by Debbie Kirkness in 2003, and becoming a charity in 2005 our popular programme includes regular activity such as a Youth Choir, Integrated Stage School and School Holiday and Outreach Workshops, Performances and Professional shows and events. There is also a Day Service Provision for young people aged 16 to 25 who have left special education and wish to advance in Performing Arts training.
Music 4 U’s ethos is around inclusivity and equality. Our projects are very much person centred and focus on the individual’s aspirations within the Performing Arts. Our team of tutors, enabler tutors, musicians, administration staff and volunteers are chosen on the basis of ability to empathise, encourage and enrich the lives of those participating.
