This young person has been coming to our DJ sessions ever since they started at CYDS, and he was one of the young performers at the Family Fun Day event, back in the summer.
He feels that, during that time, he’s really improved his musical skills and abilities. For example, back at the start he neither agreed, nor disagreed, that music making allowed him to be creative. Now he ‘strongly agrees’ with that statement – which is brilliant. He is also more pleased with his level of musical ability than he was a couple of months ago, and more committed to his own music making.
Finally, when asked about other places he could go to make music he said, ‘There’s nowhere where I live, except [at CYDS] in Leiston” – which is why we’re really, really pleased that we’ll be going back next term, to make more music with the young people there.
