This is an inclusive music making project with two cohorts of young people – primary age (years 5 and 6) and secondary age (years 7 and 8) pupils, firstly to reinterpret the landscape of loneliness and understand the stigma of being lonely through song and music making; and secondly taking a social action approach to use these learnings to support the younger cohort of young people of young people in the transition towards attending secondary school.

The barriers of ‘transition’ can destroy a youth narrative on loneliness. Through music making, we will develop a positive change in this narrative, allowing resilience and key skills to be developed.
