The Sound Mentoring Program provides free music mentoring sessions to young people aged 10 – 24 with the mission of empowering them to achieve their potential as artists and as people.
The program has been designed to team mentors and mentees based on their individual skillset (e.g. songwriting/guitar/piano/music production/vocal/rap etc) while ensuring that mentors are thoroughly screened and trained.
Sessions take place out of different music ‘hubs’ including a Surry Hills Neighbourhood centre (above the library), Auburn Youth Centre and over Zoom mentoring Indigenous young people in schools across regional NSW.
Our vision is to help create healthy, resilient and creative communities where all young people have access to music education and mentorship no matter their socio economic background.
Mentees and mentors are expected to be:
