In October 2017 our music leaders worked with 14 young people with additional needs from the SWALLOW Youth Club. As part of SWALLOW Tales Two (a creative arts project) we supported the young people to create two pieces of music based around the over-arching theme of an 'Enchanted Forest'.
The young people had the opportunity to explore a range of instruments from keyboards, drums, percussion and music technology. The young people knew exactly how they wanted the music to sound and said they enjoyed playing the instruments and listening to the different sounds.
The pieces explored forest creatures, tall trees and exploring the under growth.

We are looking forward to working with SWALLOW again in 2018!
