Who we work with

We believe that every young person should have the chance to learn through music.

Although any young person can attend our youth music courses, most (if not all) young people on our courses are facing challenging circumstances.  90% of people on our courses are or are risk of becoming NEET (not in education, employment or training).

"Dave and Al are always really supportive and assure me that I can use the session in whatever way best suits me at the time. It’s good to know they understand. That makes a lot of difference." Dimitri

We know that sometimes school doesn't quite work or, sometimes things are just really difficult, this is why we run tailored daytime 1:1 music sessions and group workshops.

Students can access our fully equipped music studio with kit including Logic Pro Studio 9 and Zed Allen and Heath live / studio production mixer.

All our sessions are delivered by our talented team of tutors who are always on hand to offer the time and expertise to help you thrive.

Referral partners

We work in partnership with pupil referral units, schools and organisations to provide regular support. Some of the organisations we work with are:

  • NHS Bristol and South Glos Mental Health Early Intervention Team
  • Catch 22  who supporting YP who are involved with criminal or gang activity
  • St Matthias Park School - Pupil referral unit
  • Bristol Futures Academy  who support young people experiencing social anxiety
  • Bristol Hospital Education Service  who offer support to young people experiencing mental health issues
  • Options / Evolve who work with young people with Autism

Join our courses

If you are a young person and you would like to attend a course you can give us a call on 0117 935 1200 and ask for Dave (he runs our youth music programme), or you can email davet@3ca.org.uk or, if those options don't work for you, come down to see us (we are the massive old church in Old Market).

If you are looking to refer a young person then you can call us and chat to Dave or ping him an email davet@3ca.org.uk.  You may also want to look here for a little more information on our Youth Music Courses.
