The Springwell Academy in Leeds asked us to help them with some DJ gear in order to run proper workshops for the young people. We were delighted to be able to help and have just had this report from Adam:
“Thanks to Music for all, we have been able to purchase suitable DJ equipment and fund a portable setup that allows students to take part in DJ-ing activities outside of the Music classroom. We have also been able to engage DJ School UK to lead a series of workshops with our students.
DJ School have attended our site twice and will continue to work with our students for 10 weeks, so far we have been able to engage 6 students in meaningful DJ activities and, thanks to the positive response from students, we are hopeful that most of them will complete an AQA Unit Award in ‘DJ Skills’.
We also aim for students to record a performance in the final workshop session which will be shown as part of a whole school performance at Christmas.
The opportunity to purchase the relevant equipment and engage a professional instructor leading to these positive outcomes would not have been possible without the support of Music for All. We are extremely thankful for the grant we received, thank you!”
