Changing Lives

Music MAKING a DIFFERENCE?

Plymouth Music Zone's youngest ever participant was 9 days old - the oldest is 94 and counting. So many stories to tell. Stories of change. Stories of courage. Stories that inspire...

When a person first comes through the door at Plymouth Music Zone it means the world to us that they finally leave having had an experience that has had a truly positive impact. Whether it's feeling more confident, listened to, more self-expressed, less isolated and lonely, having made new friends, having a sense of achievement from creating something or performing in front of a crowd, feeling more valued and accepted for who they are, excited about their new found talent, or having a new found firm belief in themselves as a musician - some kind of difference that's meant the world to them...

Here are just a few of the PMZ stories where your support really does help music to make a difference...


JIMMY - DRUMMING UP SUCCESS

Jimmy Gullis is a promising drummer and bassist and hopes one day to become a gigging musician like his dad, earning a living from music.

Jimmy has been a familiar face at Plymouth Music Zone for the last seven years. At age five he tried out a percussion workshop and it all began from there! A regular at the after school club ‘Jam Band’, Jimmy has got involved in so many opportunities at PMZ and now helps feed back into the organisation as a member of our Youth Forum, ‘Tempo’.  In 2013 he was a finalist for a Nick Thomas Award for Outstanding Achievement.

Jimmy says at Plymouth Music Zone he found ‘like-minded people’ and a place that encouraged his talent to grow.
