Standing Upright

YMCA Music Studio is part of YMCA North Tyneside. We are passionate about supporting young people. We currently run a youth-focused project called Standing Upright on a Wednesday and Friday evening. 

Standing upright works with young people aged between 12 and 24. It is delivered by music educators from North Tyneside Music Education Hub. Young people who attend the project work towards bronze or silver level arts awards or can benefit from expert music tuition to achieve ABRSM grades in their chosen musical discipline. Young people are challenged to organise their own music events and open mic nights to showcase their developing talents.

Launched in April 2018, funded by Youth Music Network, Standing Upright is becoming increasingly popular and our young people are developing a number of skills. We have at least 12 young people studying towards their Arts Award qualifications. They are all developing their interests and talent in music and aspire to develop careers in the music industry.

Our qualified music tutors are experts in their fields and are able to offer first-class education and coaching from their own personal experiences as accomplished touring musicians and professional engineers within the music industry.
