Launching AllStars.... We are now recruiting for our new music sessions.
Count Me in are really pleased and excited to have secured funding to run the AllStars project – continuing and extending the work of our Heart Beats inclusive music club based in Wells.
Just like Heart Beats, AllStars is for young people with learning disabilities between the ages of 16 and 25.
AllStars is supported by Youth Music and using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
It's called 'AllStars' because we believe everyone is musical. Music is a great platform for friendship and communication.
The club is for anyone who wants to play live music – it doesn’t matter where you live, or if you don’t yet play an instrument. Do you know someone who would like to come?
The AllStars project will reach out across Somerset. We think it is exciting because it will bring young people of different abilities together to meet, learn and converse through music, using improvisation and having fun.
Sessions will be led by the Count Me In team - Jane Harwood, Alex Lupo, Ben Waller, Geoff Stow, and Russ Stanley.
All the team are really experienced at supporting everyone to get the best out of music.
Why would people want to come?
Our young musicians really like the sessions. MJ, who lives in Shepton and is a very important member of our team, says ‘... Heart Beats is a very special group where I can relax and enjoy making music with friends.
Jane, Russ, Alex and Ben make every week fun and we learn different exciting things.
I am happy to help people with music at Heart Beats. I have learned to play the Hammered Dulcimer and love improvising with Alex. Music always makes me feel good.’
This summer we are running four taster sessions at Wells museum (Cathedral Green, Wells, BA5 2UE) Be there to start at 6.00 p.m.; we finish at 8.00. The sessions cost £2 per person . You don’t need to book for the tasters.
In September we start regular evening sessions , twice a month in term time.
