Well am I one excited Chairwoman or what?? Just a quickie on why and when I have more on the subject, I will write it all down.
I attended a meeting last Friday with David Stanley and a few others to learn about David's Music Man project. David started music session in 2000 at Southend Mencap. He ran these for a few years then started The Music Man project. They have music 5 days a week 10-3 and produce some amazing music.
Last year in June his group hired out The London Palladium and packed it out. His enthusiasm and love of what he does is infectious and I was swept away with the idea of our bang & crash session joining the Music Man Project and becoming the accomplished musicians that they are.
We have 2 years to teach our bangers and crashers some rhythm to be able to join in with another huge event.
If anyone would like to take part in this wonderful project, get in touch with us at the Centre and we will give more details.
There's a few details to be ironed out then I will put a full positng on this project and hope youre as excited as I am :-D
