Rehearsal Spaces Report

A new report, commissioned by Sound Connections, has highlighted the importance of helping young people access spaces to make music.

Funding from the DCMS (Department for Culture, Media and Sport) enabled UK Music and Sound Connections to support a two-year pilot Rehearsal Spaces project from 2009-2011.

The project established 14 music rehearsal spaces for young people aged between 8 and 25 located in urban and rural areas of England experiencing multiple deprivation. The funds were used to provide instruments and equipment, and contributed towards the cost of necessary capital works, such as sound proofing. The vast majority of the spaces were located in local authority owned buildings – often existing community spaces.

In the report, a number of significant achievements and recommendations were highlighted exploring how the programme can develop onto the next phase.
