Teenagers learnt to play music and compose songs in 6 months
15 teenagers performed in Music Fest 2021 in early December. Apart from doing cover songs, they showed their talents by playing original songs.
Supported by Sai Kung District Youth Programme Committee, YWCA Tseung Kwan O Integrated Social Service Centre organised "Power of Voice" in July, providing music training to teenagers. Most of the participants were secondary school students, and half of them had never received any relevant training. They learnt to sing, to play musical instrument, and to compose a song within 6 months. Their performance at the Music Fest was marvelous. Doing cover songs were not enough. They told the audience their stories by playing original songs.
Their pieces were not perfect, yet full of energy and courage. Zpecial, the guest band, encouraged the participants to persevere and not to give in to any obstacles, before going onto a larger stage. The band members also suggested that the best support would be not opposing their children playing music.
