The first session we did was when we all got into groups and talked about what our characters should be like through our own experiences from being in care. I found it really interesting to find out from other people what it was like for them when they were in care.
The second session we listened to some artists performed to us and then we followed on with making positives and negatives for the characters we created. We then started working on the chorus within our groups and we came up with some great lines to be used as a chorus.
The third session Liam performed again and taught us about ‘stacking ammo’. then our group finished writing the chorus whilst the other group were still working on the rap.
I hope to achieve more confidence in singing my own songs in front of other people. I also find this project to be not only music based but will help others to understand better that everyone’s experiences are different.
