Roland, has announced Music on My Mind, a new community-driven project set up in partnership with Hammersmith, Fulham, Ealing, and Hounslow – HFEH Mind charity and Metropolis Recording Studios in Chiswick.
Music on My Mind will welcome affiliate musicians and music industry experts to Roland’s Artist Centre at Metropolis to host a series of workshops for young people (ages 16-25).
The connection between mental health and music has never been more pertinent, so it’s important to not only facilitate discussions that contribute to a wider conversation within today’s modern society, but also create ways in which people can make use of that connection in a positive way.
The partnership will support young people’s mental health through music and enable those from every background to explore music as a means of self-expression, build confidence and self-esteem, learn new skills, and excel in what they are passionate about.
The project provides early intervention to promote positive mental health and wellbeing for children and young people and promotes careers in music and the creative industries.
Music on My Mind workshops will begin running in Autumn and will include appearances from:
- P R G R S H N – UK producer whose credits include Stormzy, Tiana Major and Wretch 32
- Saoirse – DJ/Producer and founder of Body Movement Festival
- Joy Anonymous – London-based electronic music collective
More information can be found at HFEH Mind’s website.
