Last week we ran some very successful workshops at Music for Youth with a mix of both age groups and style. On Tuesday 7th July we were joined by Dominic Peckham who took Nico's original songs and created something unique which the children really enjoyed. On Wednesday, Tom Appleton was taking the workshops, and he taught the children of Brackenfield and Yardley Primary Schools and extremely entertaining warm up. We are looking forward to sharing these with you on our soon to be updated YouTube channel.

We all had a great time and are looking forward to working with the schools we met further (and we are looking forward to coming back to Music for Youth next year)
