Just completed a week of workshops for THSH and UFA, project was called Soulful summer.
I helped facilitate sessions based mainly on developing young people’s composition skills. I was blown away by the young people’s ideas and good vibes. Some of the feedback I got was great, and was nice to see some of the younger participants’ confidence really grow!
Here’s some audio:
Safari Life: written in a day, based on a drum ostinato played in an improvised ostinato exercise I always use.
Our version of Summer Time, I led the rhythm section, or they led me lol! Huw lead horns, Shereece led the singers.
Thanks to Katy G and Jan P for their assistance and support!
………….Only a few more days to go before I get some time off to develop my own creativity, yay!
