Music At Burley Inclusive

Music is a universal language that speaks to everyone regardless of learning disability. Burley Inclusive draws on the experience and talent of music promoters, music teachers, DJs and recording artists on its staff to run in-depth music projects that go beyond the usual. Our service users explore their creativity through songwriting and self expression, and develop their confidence by playing to live audiences. Through gigs and radio broadcasts, our service users act as ambassadors for their demographic, offering their peers an inspiring view of members within the LD community as successful musicians, and encouraging them to realise and achieve their own ambitions.


The Steel Squid Collective

A service user rock band set up by Burley Inclusive, the Steel Squid practises in the recording studio at Portishead Youth Centre. The band is more than a music therapy project - students receive 1:1 tuition on their instruments, are supported to write songs, develop their stage image and undertake recording projects.

The band have played a number of gigs in front of sizeable audiences, rocking venues such as Weston College, Tickenham Community Hall, People First events and outdoor festivals in Yatton and Bristol. Their next project is to record an album of original songs, and the possibility of a genuine record deal is on the horizon.
