Dean & Angela

dv2-nov-16-a-downie-3Dean & Angela were part of In Tune earlier in the year. They came with their two children, one only 6 months old at the time of the project starting, the other the oldest in the group.  As with most sessions of In Tune, it’s amazing to watch as people get their heads round the project, what it is, what might be expected of them, and what they can get from it.

“I wasn’t too sure really. I hoped it’d kinda be a good visit and get to see the kids really.  It’s been excellent, it’s been superb. At first the boys didn’t really know much about it but it really is superb.” Dean

The family recognized that through the project both their sons were getting loads from being involved.

“The wee one’s started clapping as well for his first time because of one of the songs.              The third session he started to clap his hands and has came on so much. Our older son has football training and he usually trains twice a week and one is a Wednesday night, so we asked him what he wanted to do and he chose In Tune; he’s loved it!” Dean

“I thought he’d have chosen the football, and I did say to him it was fine if he chose the football, but he definitely wanted the music class!” Angela

“I’d never done singing and clapping with my sons before. It’s just the wee things; it’s been priceless to see him crawling about and clapping and stuff.  It’s great for me and them for the bond.” Dean
