Today we began to develop the musical ideas, and the lyrics they have written. We created a guide track upon which the project will be developed.
Enjoyed working with an individual in two, 1to1 music sessions the last couple of weeks, introducing them to music technology through the laptop and on the iPad. Thank you to Music Fusion in The Spring Arts Centre, Havant for providing us with a space.
We worked on re-arranging an old song that individuals had written and recorded previously. They decided to re-record the piano parts, and also worked out a plan for working on future material too. It was a really fun, relaxed session.
It was great to be back working with the GMV music group. They revisited a song recorded a little while ago. They decided what direction they wanted to take the song, and made changes to some of the musical arrangements.
We have been working with the students at Toynbee School delivering music sessions along with Jim Chorley, as part of our Inclusive Music Project, supported by Music Fusion, and funded by Hampshire Music Education Hub. The group wrote lyrics, composed and recorded their own tracks over the duration of the project, and we are looking forward to working with the school again in the future.

The GMV Music group had a great session with year 2 Music Technology students from Portsmouth College. They organised and facilitated an inclusive music workshop, as part of their course, at the Charles Dickens Centre, Lake Road Portsmouth. All members of the GMV group contributed to the recording session in some way, creating/using original material. They all had fun today.
