Community Music Spark Diary 16 November
Community Music Spark is Sage Gateshead’s community music training programme for adults with learning disabilities. We currently work with four volunteer participants, three of whom have attended previously on work placements from MENCAP National College Dilston, Northern Counties College and Dryden School.

Paul: snug as a bug in a rug.
Andrew: we met in the cafe as usual.
Marc:: We joined by another visitor today, a community music degree student called Krystle.
Andrew: We had planned to split the PRS inclusion group in to two different rooms and do some recording this week.

John: Barry Graham…
