Making Tracks is a life-changing music-making project delivered in collaboration by Trinity, Basement Studios and ACE. Together, they work with young people from all different backgrounds and ages, who may be struggling with confidence, behaviour, health, well-being or other personal circumstances.
They deliver 1-2-1 and small group music-making sessions tailored for individual needs in music production, vocals and instruments. Alongside this they also program industry events, workshops and performance opportunities – they even connect young people with their live music programme, such as Q&A’s with professional musicians.
