YOUNGSTERS from Hillfields Youth Club have been taking part in an innovative music project.

The digital orchestra session, run by Wac Arts Interactive, was aimed at children with mild to moderate learning disabilities.

The children used fun instrumental apps on iPads and innovative new instruments such as the skoog to devise their own unique compositions which they then recorded and performed.

The 13 to 18-year-olds are members of the WECIL (The West of England Centre for Inclusive Living) youth group which meets twice a month at Hillfields Youth Club and is open to both disabled and non-disabled young people.

Sessions, which are free and are held on alternate Tuesday evenings from 7-9.30pm, are aimed at promoting fun and development and include activities such as sports, creative workshops, cooking and social trips. 

Anyone interested in attending should contact WECIL’s youth services manager Phil Cotgreave on phil.cotgreave@wecil.co.uk or call 0117 947 9911. 

WECIL, which has offices in both the Vassall Centre in Fishponds and Kingswood, also runs other sessions throughout Bristol for young disabled people and children with additional needs or a disability.
