Youth Mental Health Day in Bantry 2014

Youth Mental Health Day 2014On Tuesday 7th October ’14 I was delighted to be involved with this event marking Youth Mental Health Day. I had a great group of 23 youngsters from different schools who joined me for a creative music making session. Complete with drums and other items of handheld percussion, we explored rhythms and voice based around the song “Let’s get it started”, by the Black Eyed Peas. Although we found ourselves in a somewhat ‘squishy’ space and had to remain seated throughout the duration of the session, we still managed to have great fun incorporating body percussion rhythms as well as hand held instruments.
