Music Space is a UNIQUE project, which offers one to one support, rehearsal space, recording time and gigging opportunities to the young music makers of Tower Hamlets.
What’s it all about?
There are two strands to the programme. Music Space Bands and Music Space Production.
Six young bands aged 14-19 will get one to one support with professional musicians to perfect, perform and record their tracks which will then be uploaded online. They will also have the chance to play at gigs throughout the year – including Music Space Live, now held at Rich Mix in Bethnal Green.
Other bands with a bit more experience will be able to access free rehearsal facilities and gain access to support where necessary.
