Beats Group

launchpad Newcastle and Gateshead Art Studio (NAGAS)

Mondays 3pm – 6pm, Anderson House, Market Street, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 6XA.

The Beats group is a friendly, safe environment for people with diagnoses to relax, listen to or create music among their peers. Whatever your tastes in music, see if you can add to the melting pot. People can come and go as they please between 3pm and 6pm on a Monday evening, and stay for as long or as short a time as they need to. Stick your head around the door and that’s all if you decide it’s not for you, we don’t mind. Alternatively, play or sing a note, whether you are classically trained or wanting to begin. Create an album if you have one within you. We will find you the resources. Record your own song or perform a cover of your favourite one, or design some computer music. All we ask is that the feelings of the people in the room at the time are respected, and anything personal that’s discussed is not used as idle gossip! There is an element of peer support, but don’t let that scare you off, we do have a giggle and distract ourselves from/avoid the darker side of life when we can!
