Music - Compose Yourself!
So many musical ideas pop into our heads! Join Steve and learn to grab an idea, match it with another and keep adding til there's a song.
We'll compose together and individually, using the Studio On The Spur to capture any finished products we may develop.
Bring your awesome brain, your voice, any level of experience and any instrument/s you love to play.
Be ready to be inspired - by God and by others - as we use music to explore the FATA theme.
