Find your tune
Musement Young Creatives examine thought provoking (SMSC relating) stimuli in the form of songs, dissecting and discussing the lyrical content/musical literature and find a line/tune that resonates or ‘sings to them’.
Find your truth
They then write and develop a response piece from the heart, true to their inner truth, incorporating key poetic devices. This is creatively fused with original vocal arrangements, taught by a Musement mentor (musical guru) and collaboratively, they produce impactful MUSE–ical expressions of their truth. Their voice. Their story. Singing merged with spoken word, with messages emphasised through synchronised movement – musical poetry with a twist.
Find your true potential
Young Creatives (also known as musical poets) showcase their minds and vocal excellence in impactful staged performances of their work, ‘singing their story’ to educate and inspire others to engage in their education and life, stirring societies and motivating the masses as they creatively explore current issues in society.
They occasionally have the opportunity to interact with known musicians/ entertainment professionals and are given the opportunity to engage in Q&A sessions with the artist for that extra inspiration. In some instances, Young Creatives even perform with renowned industry professionals, accompanied by an elite live band. Their transformational journeys are documented in a Musement personal development folder, reflecting their growth and greatness and they have the option of obtaining the nationally recognised Arts Award qualification at GCSE and A–level standard.
