East Riding - The Remarkable Theatre Company

This 'Making Music' project ran by over the summer allowing 23 young people, aged between 9 and 16, the opportunity to try out one of the following - keyboards, vocals, guitars. For many it was the first time they had tried these instruments and they enjoyed learning and mastering instrumental parts from popular songs, and working together to make a superb high quality recording of 14 tracks, featuring all the participants.

This project was specifically designed for those with a limited access to professional music tuition or with limited experience of musical instruments and has left every member with a new-found thirst for making music, with several members now determined to take up their instrument of choice.

The group enjoyed learning together in the workshops, but one of the biggest benefits was being able to offer one-on-one tuition, which for many of our young people was a new experience. It was the first time any of them had made a professional sound recording.
