I am a primary school teacher that is very passionate about the arts and creativity. I enjoy writing about different events to show how people can make the most out of their life.

If you are thinking about trying a new musical instrument for the fist time, or feel you would like to improve the instrumental skills with the instrument you currently own, then listen up.
Cloth Cat is a non profitable organisation that tries to help improve the quality of the local residences lives within Leeds. They aim to improve confidence skills, making music contacts, learning musical and other skills, help people feel that they are gaining control over their life and help them to feel empowered about going to seek employment.
Cloth Cat Studios is based in Inner City Leeds which aims to provide:
a) FREE/low cost music courses and other music-based training for local people. b) Facilities to promote people who want to be involved in music, particularly those on low incomes.
They aim to work with a range of different people to try and help as many people they feel they can offer their services to. Cloth Cat has helped university students, prisoner in mates, school children and many more. Who ever you are and whatever your reason for trying Cloth Cat; I assure you that you will be presently surprised.
I have just recently started a course at Cloth Cat which is called 'Sing Your Song.' This is a course that aims to build confidence and enjoyment with using your voice. To have awareness of the different ways you can use your voice and to develop the performance experience. I am at University training to be a Primary School Teacher and I believe that music skills are a very important asset to the primary classroom and so I turned to Cloth Cat. It is a ten week course and I am having a brilliant time making new friends, learning new techniques and vocal skills. I had no previous musical knowledge prior to joining this course and I felt that that might have been an issue. But whatever your ability, they will welcome you with open arms.
Other courses include: Ableton Live Ableton Advanced
