“Since I’ve been contributing on this course it has been very educational and fulfilling. I have learnt a lot about myself and have also thankfully been given a chance to express myself through music. Additionally the amount of creativity I’ve experienced over the time only further proves there is talent in all of us. Everyone has a gift which makes them unique and Chris gives individuals the opportunity to pursue those talents – Korrie 19.
The program was very elevating because I was always learning new things and techniques for performance. It was a new learning curve for me meeting new people and beneficial to help me go further – Jermaine 19
The course made me, not only think differently but put those thoughts into action. I didn’t think there were a lot of avenues for me on release but Chris has showed me that with determination you can succeed – Joel 19.
