We return to yellow submarine to deliver some Junk4Funk workshops.


This is the 3rd wave of projects we have run with Yellow Submarine and our partnership work has gone from strength to strength.

Yellow Submarine run a youth club day during the school holidays for the young people they support and we have been delivering music projects with them as part of their holiday activities.

The charity have now expanded to include Blackbird Leys in their delivery and have offered to fund the music workshops in that area. Which means both OCM and Yellow Submarine can deliver more music projects, to more young people at half of the cost.


The Junk4Funk Project was delivered during May half term of 2015.

Junk4Funk is run by a music practitioner called Victor Scott who runs music workshops with children and young people using recycled materials.

Anna Cheetham from Yellow Submarine suggested that this would be an excellent workshop to run as the young people are really into craft and have enjoyed the music making workshops.

So we booked Victor.

The Story

Victor delivered two workshop sessions on the project. One in Witney and the other in Blackbird Leys.

The sessions began with a short rhythm warm up game and then we progressed to creating out own instruments.  The young people created their own guitars and shakers.

The project concluded with a Jam to a chosen Shakira track which the young people absolutely loved.

Next Steps

We would love to return to Yellow Submarine and run some more workshops with them. Please feel free to download a copy of this projects case study below.
