Young people express themselves in a multitude of colour and sound
30 March 2016
During March, Youth Connexions has been hosting exciting workshops exploring light and sound at the ‘Megamix’ project in Bowes Lyon Centre, Stevenage.
Delivered by Herts Music Service in collaboration with the Funky Pie Music Company, these sensory sessions enable young people with a learning difficulty or a disability (LDD) to experience light and sound in a unique way using various apps and IT media.
The young people, who regularly attend the ‘Megamix’ project on Tuesday evenings, learned new forms of communication, through light and sound. They benefited from improved communication skills and will be able to build on these as the apps used are available through smart phones.
Future sessions may include interactive drumming workshops which develop listening skills and group working.
