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

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
