Thanks to hcmf//, young people with disabilities can now spend the February half-term holiday exploring and creating a range of different styles of music. Kirklees College in Huddersfield is hosting a series of daily workshops between Monday 15 and Friday 19 February: sessions include a taste of Scottish folk, jazz and funk improvisation and a chance to experiment with the innovative SoundBeam ‘invisible keyboard’.

The free workshops are aimed at young people aged from 13-25 with either physical or learning disabilities. Participants can sign up for as many days as they wish, but places must be booked in advance.

The workshops take place on the following days:
15 February: Singing and Signing with Accessible Arts
16 February: SoundBeam technology with Unit Six
17 February: Scottish Folk Music with Michael Haywood and Laura Grime
18 February: Jazz and funk improvisation with Three Jazz
19 February: Composing with the Fell Clarinet Quartet

Sessions run from 10.30am to 3.30pm at the college’s Huddersfield centre on New North Road, Huddersfield, HD1 5NN. The hcmf// workshops are funded by Kirklees Council as part of the Aiming High for Disabled Children programme.
