Festival of Creative Learning (Part 2)

First up, we’re delighted to offer you the following guitar tutorial from our friend Leroy Mentos, who as well as being an inspirational youth worker at RYCE is also a pretty deft six-string player. In this clip Leroy shows you how to play two simple chords – E minor and Asus2 – which, coupled with his excellent guitar tuning tutorial, are all you need to write a song. If you come up with any two-chord wonders we’d love to hear them!

If you’re a young person living locally then the Princes Trust offer some great services, which can help you with building your confidence, finding a job and starting your own business – including a programme of activities in Redditch. Much of their work takes a very creative approach to learning and personal development, so comes highly recommended. Find out more on their website here.
