The Soundbites/HomeSounds project is a collaboration with Recast Music Education. The Soundbites element is a weekly open-door music-making session that works with young people at City Academy Norwich to promote music of any and every variety, build confidence and collaboration skills and provide a young-person led creative space to explore, experiment and learn.  Soundbites has been running for a number of years and has worked with over 100 students in that time. Building confidence, developing fundamental musical awareness and skills and exploring individual creativity which make up the central components of our work with young producers, piano players, drummers, grime artists, singers and more.

The HomeSounds element invites young-people across Norfolk aged between 11-18 (and particularly encourage participants from the West Earlham NR5 area ) to tune into the world around them through sound-walks, live-streaming, listening sessions, microphone building and more.  They are encouraged to connect with both their natural and man-made sound-worlds. Through this primary listening connection they have been encouraged to tune into themselves and their inner worlds – by doing this – develop their understanding for, and appreciation of their role and place within the natural world & relationships.
