MINDS AND MELODIES
The Minds and Melodies Program is aimed at students who have experienced negative events in their lives which are affecting their confidence, self-esteem, and engagement in society. Our practitioners deliver a rolling 6-week mentoring programme, comprising a mixture of 2-hour group and 1:1 coaching and workshop sessions utilizing music and video production techniques to support students to express themselves and their emotional well-being by identifying positive qualities to build their confidence and self-esteem, increasing motivation.
Our framework offers a wide range of music-therapy based activities intended to build confidence and strengthen the emotional stability of students who suffer from behavioral difficulties, communication problems, and social-emotional conditions which impede on their ability to learn or with general school interactions.
To create a nurturing environment for children and young people to progressively build stronger foundations necessary to maintain a positive mental attitude.
The program will create a deeper sense of self-awareness for the participants as well as provide students with new skills and a better understanding of effective communication. Our practices will provide an enlightening experience, channeling accurate solutions into physical actions to improve the quality of life.
Completing tasks and activities will further enhance key fundamentals required for managing life at a later stage, which will prepare each participant to overcome obstacles in a positive manner and motivate them to see, plan, execute and achieve tasks fairly.
What evidence is there for this intervention
One of our main aims and objectives as an organisation is to divert young people away from antisocial behaviour by providing constructive, fun and educational activities that will enhance their sense of self and enable them to feel more empowered to make good choices as well as prepare them to be responsible adults.
Statistics from the Youth Justice Board indicate London as having the highest rate of young people under the age of 18 held in custody for Antisocial Behaviour. According to recent sources, over the last two years in London, there were 589 incidents of crime, the highest being 157 reports of Anti-Social Behaviour. Only 23% of young people are educated to degree level and a large majority are unemployed until the age of 22. Our program is needed to raise the aspirations of young people living in London, motivating them to reach their potential.
