Singing Parties for Niddrie Youth Group & Lothian Autistic Society
In the last week we have had the pleasure of providing recording studio experiences for two youth groups.
First up was the Niddrie Community Youth Group who sent along seven teenagers to sing their chosen song Valerie by Amy Winehouse. The girls started off very well singing as a group and then after some gentle prompting they split into two smaller groups to sing a verse each of the song before joining together at the end for the final verse and chorus.
Niddrie Youth Group Organiser Will Golding said afterwards. “Amazing to see what could be done and produced so professionally and so quickly! The girls were made really welcome, and the studio workers were really friendly, energetic and supportive. They adapted to the desires and ideas of the girls, and tried out different approaches for including everyone in the ways they wanted. We’re looking to take some of our other groups there too now, I’d recommend it to others for sure. Brilliant experience and session for a youth group. Thanks again”.
On Sunday we had a visit from a mixed age group of siblings of kids with Autism which was organised by The Lothian Autistic Society.
After some natural initial shyness the kids all got into the spirit if things and recorded a fantastic version of The Lazy Song by Bruno Mars.
Organiser Angela Turnbull (who also took part in the singing) wrote in afterwards to say “Thanks again for today which was great fun! You are both so easy going that it helped everyone to relax into the session and enjoy it more”.
