LEVS - Youth Music Leader Training project
Aspiring young musicians have had the chance to develop new skills as workshop leaders, working alongside professional tutors from AudioActive, opening up new work opportunities along the way.
The 2-year 'LEVS' programme, in partnership with the Youth Offending Service in Brighton & Hove, took ten trainee music leaders aged 16-24 through the vocational training allowing them to experience different aspects of delivering diversionary music sessions to other young people, some who are involved in the criminal justice system.
Music leader trainee, Viv Harnden, describes the impact the project has had on him.
The project is supported by Youth Music.
AudioActive will be fundraising to run future Youth Music Leader training programmes in the future

Frankie Stew and Harvey Gunn collaborate with live musicians at AudioActive Presents
As part of FUSE 2013, AudioActive are curating a special featured collaboration to headline AudioActive Presents... on the 15th December
We're thrilled to announce that Frankie Stew and Harvey Gunn will be collaborating with young musicians Nancy Carter & Julia Palmer to create a new piece of music to perform on the night. So far, the piece looks to be an exciting mixture of Frankie's reserved and enigmatic vocals, Harvey's shimmering and smokey beats, and a live mixture of strings, brass and harp.
Come to AudioActive Presents on December the 15th to see the results of this unique collaboration
