NGSO is a music programme organised by Depot Arts, a community arts organisation based in Possilpark and working throughout North Glasgow. Depot Arts is offering this innovative free programme of music tuition and instrument making for young people aged 14-20 in the North Glasgow area.

NGSO is recruiting NOW across North Glasgow! We are looking for young people who wish to learn new skills in music and meet new people. Our workshops will be run in Arts venues across Possilpark, Milton, Barlornock and Springburn in partnership with other Arts organisations such as Beatroute Arts, New Rhythms for Glasgow and Milton Arts Project.
Participants will be introduced to Skiffle music and classical music and then replicate each section of an orchestra, by primarily creating their own instruments and then using those instruments to write, record and perform songs under the guidance of professional musicians and a classical composer. They will also get the opportunity to see an orchestra perform live as well as record with their own handmade instruments in Chem 19 Studios in Glasgow.

According to the SIMD index which compares and contrasts communities of multiple social and economic deprivation, Possilpark is ranked as the second most deprived area in the whole of Scotland.

It is imperative to offer creative opportunities to vulnerable, impressionable young people in the area, where there is currently no music provision.

Music making opportunities can help to nurture the positive development of teenagers and young adults and inspire them to become positive members of their community with a sense of self awareness and belief in their own potential.
