Young Songwriters


Young Songwriters

Young musicians are at the heart of BlueJam and propel us in the right direction! Many of our current tutors and leaders have been with the organisation from the beginning, gone away to work or study and come back either to live or visit for sessions or projects.

There is always a demand for band workshops – as a place where young musicians can develop their own sound and identity and learn the skills to play effectively together in a group.

Currently our band workshop with Sean Haythornthwaite is putting together some great pop tunes.

We also have breakout spaces where people can work on their own ideas. Our focus on composition and songwriting has contributed to helping young people develop great musicianship skills and a passion and commitment for helping others to find their voice.
