We believe that the arts have the power to transform lives. Learning a musical instrument is a wonderful way to develop your creativity. InSession works with original artists to showcase a range of genres and ways of learning and making music. We want to show every young person the creative possibilities that lie ahead as well as the practical steps to getting started in the music industry.
InSession is a partnership project between The Pound Arts Trust and Wiltshire Music Connect. InSession provides inspiring opportunities to learn and perform across Wiltshire linking young people. music teachers and performers.
InSession incorporates individual lessons, signposting, focused group work, performance opportunities and a digital platform.
Our aim is to connect young people with musicians, teachers and music organisations that can nurture and develop their love of music.

Who We Are:
The Pound Arts Trust Limited, a charity registered by guarantee, is responsible for running The Pound, the arts hub for north Wiltshire based in Corsham; Corsham Festivals; and Rural Arts Touring, which comprises the rural touring schemes Rural Arts Wiltshire and Rural Arts South Gloucestershire.
The Pound is an arts venue and community hub for people living and working in and around north Wiltshire. Refurbished in 2006/7 following an investment of £1.2 million by North Wiltshire District Council, The Pound offers rehearsal and workshop spaces, a 100-seat auditorium, a gallery space and café bar. Three seasons of performances, film, participatory arts events and exhibitions are promoted at The Pound and other venues in north Wiltshire every year. In summer 2012 three studio spaces and a community workshop were created which house three resident emerging visual artists.
Corsham Festivals is the festivals strand of Pound Arts and comprises two four day festivals – The Blue Sky Festival in June, which is a celebratory family festival featuring many free events, and Magic & Mayhem in November, a Festival of Cabaret and vintage arts.
Rural Arts Touring comprises two rural touring schemes: Rural Arts Wiltshire (RAW) and Rural Arts South Gloucestershire. These schemes are two of 40 rural touring schemes in England & Wales. Pound Arts works in partnership with volunteer promoters in up to 60 villages across the two unitary authority areas to stage around 100 professional performances and 20 participatory arts events every year. Pound Arts manages RAW on behalf of Wiltshire Council.
