Music: Progress

music huddersfield

Wednesdays at 2.30pm - 4.30pm

There’s a reason why we tap our feet along to a beat - music makes us feel good, helps us express our emotions, and it’s great for our wellbeing. 

This term

‘Down By The River’ - songwriting sessions thinking about rivers, streams, brooks and tributaries, and using these to inspire songs and improvisations.

What is a progress group?

Join other participants in making your own music in an independent, supported environment. Improvise, create, jam and compose whatever music you would like in our digital studio, making use of a wide range of instruments, synths and recording technology to create new music with others.
