what people are saying about D3

In June 2017, I attended Denetta’s workshops on how to write your own rap song that was delivered as part of a literature festival, a funded community project at New Wortley community centre.

I had been a previous workshop on writing rap and I found Denetta’s methods for teaching were far more engaging. She has a unique way of encouraging people’s personal stories from them and building their confidence. I have dyslexia and other in the mixed group were vulnerable and had learning needs. Denetta responded with empathy and shared her own personal experiences, making us comfortable to share ours. Not only did I write a rap song, we all got up and performed it in a showcase night!

Being able to empower anyone to perform their own work is a very special thing.

D3 confidence from the moment she walked in the studio, and after watching her perform in the live lounge, I could see why. Her lyrical content and delivery are impeccable. Her received pronunciation allows you to hear every word, although her flow is fast.

I was very interested to learn about her work with the Leeds Young Authors and the U.S.A competitions they took part in, during the live interview. 

I already know and LOVE the Leeds based Hayshi band that D3 is also in. Denetta gave me hope that we will see them again soon..
