This group was inspired by the music group that used to run at Jewel and Esk Valley College. The people in this group get to experience different areas of the Arts to enhance their communication skills e.g. the use of music to emphasise rhythm in speech, song making relating to their everyday lives, conducting and taking part in group musical activities. The groups aims are: to increase self confidence, increase self awareness and awareness of others, improve communication skills, to develop imagination, build cooperation and trust and to encourage giving and receiving support and encouragement to each other. The group are getting into the swing of things now.
