2Funky gets a shout out in the Leicester Mercury!
TEENAGERS with a passion for music have been learning about producing, lyric-writing, and being a DJ, to earn themselves a qualification.
The group of six 16 to 18 year olds are taking part in a project over the summer for young people who are not in education or employment, at 2Funky records in Belgrave Gate, Leicester.
At the end of the three week course they will achieve a Bronze Young People's Arts Award.
Manager of 2Funky Arts Lauren Ramskir said: "They came to us with an interest in music and are all really enjoying it. Music really speaks to young people.
"They relate their lives to music by their favourite artists. If they come to us with a song they have heard on the radio or you tube which they really like we can show them how to break it down and make it.
