We learn music and computer. At first we didn’t know how to do that music and computer. But he showed us and we looked, watched and learned from him.  It was a bit hard to learn.  When we first started we couldn’t work it out, we made lots of mistakes, but slowly we learned and now it’s easy for us....That’s a good way of learning.  That’s an easy way of learning, like when people show you, when you practise, like when you do it, when someone shows you and you do it again, and you do it, and try it again and you’ll get it, you’ll catch it like that. The more you practice, the more you learn, like that...we learn from making mistakes’....Chris 23yrs & Nathan 24yrs
