Local young people interested in music are invited to join headspace Bathurst’s Sound Check – a free group for 12-25-year olds wanting to learn a new skill, or hone an existing one.
Jake Byrne, headspace Bathurst Community Engagement Officer, says the group is something new for the team – designed to promote engagement with the centre and a social place for young people to learn new skills.
“Music is a great way to bring people together. Young people will be supported by mentors from Mitchell Conservatorium, Lifeline Central West and of course headspace staff,” Mr Byrne said.
Young people will have a choice of a range of instruments including drums, keyboards, electric, acoustic and bass guitars.
“Listening to and creating music can be beneficial for your mental health. 2020 has been a tough year and we hope this new group will provide young people with something to look forward to and help build a community,” Mr Byrne said.
Sound Check will be held at the centre on Monday afternoon/evenings with a free BBQ also provided. No equipment or experience is necessary.
Young people interested in joining can email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the team on 6338 1100. headspace Bathurst thanks Mitchell Conservatorium and Lifeline Central West for their support of Sound Check.
headspace Bathurst operates through lead agency Marathon Health, and is supported by funding from Western NSW Primary Health Network through the Australian Government’s PHN Program.
