Thanks guys for the responses. I will check these avenues out.

Red , I know what you mean about raising expectations. Young people can be over enthusiastic which leads to unreal expectations. Shows like X Factor don't help either!!

I think that I am a good role model for them as I have been a musician for over 40 years and never had a jot of fame. I was good enough to make regular money, but nothing special and have always loved playing live music. Now that I have stopped gigging, I am loving getting involved in helping these kids onto the first rung of the ladder. Good quality help and advice was never available to me back in the day. Many years were spent "finding" the pitfalls - although the school of hard knocks is a good teacher.

IMHO we have lots of "bucket of spit" songs here but we also have on or two real gems including a 14 year old girl who's written 8 songs - all good - and has no idea how to go about things. Just raw talent really. I don't want her to get shafted because we didn't support her. For various reasons a lot of these young people do not have any parents around to help either. This project has opened my eyes to a lot of societies problems , but lets not got into that one!!

Many thanks again, and you may see a couple more posts from me as the project moves along as I seem to have been left to manage this by myself.

Best Regards
