Think ‘quiet in the Library’ – think again! Stokesley Library has been reverberating to the sound of guitars, keyboards, drums and ukuleles for the past 4 weeks as Alex Cromarty has been working with a group of youngsters from Stokesley and a group of adults from local Yatton House, raising the roof and learning song-writing skills along the way.
We have had a brilliant time creating songs which Alex recorded for each member of the group. Themes ranged from ‘Hunger Games’ to love and loss, ‘what we like’, and the pleasure of simply making music. Alex was inspirational, creating lyrics and music that everyone could join in.
‘It’s better than the gym!’ one participant gasped after a drumming session.
