Work With Us

Developing Professional Music Leaders

Make Some Noise works with experienced and new music leaders, to help them improve their skills and confidence.

Make Some Noise works with over 30 musicians each year on projects with a wide range of children and young people, from toddlers to older teens, and families. The well being and confidence of the musicians leading our work is a high priority. We offer the chance to observe others leading workshops, to lead in a trainee role with support and feedback, and to take the lead on projects from start to finish. The Make Some Noise Ensemble was set up in 2008 to celebrate the musicianship and enthusiasm of a core group of 7 musicians, who have the chance to play and compose together in a relaxed setting.

SoundProof and Sound Check music leaders are all trained as Arts Award advisors, so they can now support young people in gaining their awards via the regular music workshops. Make Some Noise is a partner in MusicLeader West Midlands which offers one to one advice, group development sessions, training courses and online resources. We are also a partner in developing community artists throughout Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire, through a programme called Partners in Participatory Arts. These networks give us access to a wealth of opportunities for our musicians to flourish and find opportunities.

"I'm impressed that Make Some Noise plans long term to help provide music leaders with work in the future. I started off leading workshops, now I'm co-ordinating and managing projects. Make Some Noise have always believed in me, empowered and challenged me."
Angelo Tun
 
"Working with Make Some Noise has been inspiring - I have developed my practice and worked alongside some very talented workers and participants. Make Some Noise has been responsive to my needs and proved what a nurturing organisation they are."
Ornette Clennon

We want to develop a pool of musicians with a rich variety of musical skills, who relate well to young people and bring out their full musical potential.
