Music benefits young people in myriad ways including: improving recall and retention of verbal information, advancing maths achievement and boosting reading and English language skills. These drivers of personal development shape our engagement with young people and musical creativity. One of these projects was delivered in partnership with Youth Music Initiative, Oi Musica and Wherestheone and was a COP 26 Cultural Activity. Beacon Arts Centre was proud to produce and host this inspiring performance of new music, performed by St Mary’s Primary, Gourock Primary and Lynnie Carson, with Guest speakers Oli Furness and climate activist Kaela. None of the 100 children who performed had played a musical instrument before working with Mat Clements, a man on a mission to provide drumming workshops, memorable musical performances and special events across the community. The young people's first musical performance experience was a sure-fire hit with the 300 friends and family who attended the performance.
