Steppin' Out to Music

22nd March 2017

Over the past few weeks the Steppin' Out project has entertained and engaged our Key stage 3 students. Two professional musicians, working for the charity Live Music Now, have conducted practical workshops with the students.

Led by Tom Hawthorn, Steppin' Out are a five-piece jazz ensemble from Leeds. The band is made up of professional musicians who all have a passion to encourage people through music.

Tom and his colleagues have engaged the students with a series of fantastic workshops that have culminated in the students actually creating their own musical compositions and recording them on professional multitrack equipment.

We would like to thank Tom and his colleague Simon Dennis for the fantastic sessions.

All the students taking part enjoyed creating ideas and particularly using the 'Cajon'.

The sessions have been extremely interesting and the boys will be back to finish off after the Easter break, on the 8th May. Thanks again to all those taking part in the sessions.
