I'm not really 100% sure this is a relevant business, but I'll post it and if there are any objections please feel free to take it down! I'm not a "dump and run" poster as I'm a regular here, and as many of you will know I do a lot of youth work, particularly with Children with additional needs and behavior problems. For a long time now I've done evening sessions for the local council at youth clubs and that's been going really well. I've now decided to launch my service to a wider audience and, frankly, I'm looking for a bit of help with publicity and any advice is welcome too.
Primarily I'm aiming to roll it out in Yorkshire and the North East but anywhere I can reasonably get to is on the cards.
At the moment all I have done is setup and Facebook page and I've got reviews incoming from the youth teams I've worked for. Here's my blurb explaining what I'm offering and a link to the page:
"We're now live, and taking bookings!
Fun music sessions for kids of all ages.
So how does it work?
Give us a shout to arrange a date and then we'll help you pick a song or two. On the day, we'll arrive with all our kit and set up wherever you want. The chosen song(s) will be broken down into easy parts, enough to include every participant (even the non musical ones!) and at the end of the session the children will perform the song, with or without a little help depending on age / ability.
Mics (plus a tablet for words / music)
Special effects for both vocals and instruments
Various percussion instruments

Why not try a party with a difference? Give us a shout!"https://www.facebook.com/You-bring-the-band-1806216916352790/
Whilst this may not be directly relevant to the community, I hope to encourage many future guitarists, and am directly responsible for at least 30 guitar purchases already!
Any shares aimed at parents / teachers / youth workers in my area would be most welcome.
