OCRA Music Project

The OCRA Music Project runs every Tuesday at the Pavilion in the Park from 2pm. The music project is mainly led by local music leader Kelly Young.

The Bands Project is currently supported by Devon Music Hub for young people up to 25 years old. The project started in 2014 with the aim of helping young people learn instruments, build on existing musical skills and act as a platform for promotion and opportunities. The project encourages the participants to be as independent and proactive as possible.

Young people involved in the project have many opportunities, including:

  • Individual singing, guitar, bass and drum lessons
  • Drumming workshops
  • Gig slots at the Exeter Phoenix, the Devon County Show, Okehampton Singers concerts, Morton Music Day, OCRA Sports Festival, Okehampton Acoustic Club
  • Access to recording and rehearsal equipment and rehearsal space

The teaching of the project has been rating as ‘excellent’ by Devon Education Music Hub.

Some quotes from our young people:

“I love this project. This is my favourite part of the week”

“Music has given me so much confidence and I feel better about myself’

The project is always looking to help young musicians who want to be in an ensemble. Please contact Kelly for more information on 07932241623 or singingwithkelly@hotmail.com
