2009 and F4Wt

2009 has been a fairly busy old year for the trust.  As always, many thanks to all of you who have donated your hard earned cash over the year so that we can continue the good work… and to all of you who bought the Mega’s Merch.  There’s still loads of the ‘Tall Stories & Creepy Crawlies’ books available, just a fiver (+P&P), get in touch if you fancy one.

August saw F4Wt help out the guys at Rocked Out 5.  For those unfamiliar, this was a weeks worth of intensive workshops for musicians aged 14-18, to further their music and performance, whilst building their confidence.  Because of your kind donations, this year F4Wt were proud to be able to support 6 young musicians who wouldn’t have otherwise been able to take part.  This is what a couple of them said….

” From meeting famous band members to getting up on stage every day, it really has all been such a great experience that I would love to do again and again. I’ve learnt so much from my time at Rocked Out that I can’t thank F4WT enough! I’m so glad that I had the opportunity to learn from other students experiences alongside both vocal and stage techniques from the tutors. Rocked Out is a chance to learn and boost your confidence making it so valuable and just so worthwhile. “ – Beth Matthews (vocal student on Rocked Out 5)

“I took the vocal course on Rocked Out 5. Everyday of the course I learnt new techniques on how to improve my voice, all the tutors and other students were very supporting which helped a great deal, it was so much fun. My favourite part of the course was definitely the concert we put together on the last day, I had so much fun on stage and off, watching everyone performing, I made many friends in the first day of the course, and has helped me meet other people with similar music tastes. I wanted to be a part of Rocked out 5, as being tutored by professional musicians sounded an amazing opportunity, also schools do not offer this type of stage atmosphere. Being up on stage with a band, and a crowd put more energy into it, making it much more exciting. I recommend it to anyone who has a passion for music.” – Charlie Walter (vocal student on Rocked Out 5)

Karina went along on their performance day (7th August), and was mightily impressed at how well they’d all come along in just 5 days.  Congratulations to all those at Rocked Out, you did a fantastic job and F4Wt is proud to have been part of it again… here’s looking to RO6!

F4Wt also supported new band We Crash Planes when they needed to record a video, but had no venue.  One weekend we took to the Westy studio and the video was shot.  The Importance of Sleep can be viewed here.

So, what will 2010 hold?  We’ll have to wait and see… but there a few things up our sleeves and a few records on our decks.

Thanks again to all those past & present who have supported the trust.  You are the stars
