Workshop sessions using music to bring young people together in a safe environment where we'll discuss as a group the topics that matter, give an insight into the music industry, offer practical tips for organising work and demonstrate essential skills.  Last but not least we will be providing workshops for aspiring young DJs, producers, singers and rappers where they can practice their art, share experiences and gain inspiration.


I'm Kennie Gillard - music mentor.  After working with young adults in care and successfully using music to reach out to these guys I’ve decided to collaborate with my contacts and friends in the music industry, young people I've worked with and young people I've met whilst DJing and working as a promoter, to put on a workshop to which we can all contribute and learn from.  The door is open for others to join us too @ The Music4Minds open workshop.
