Whole school Project - Spring 2020
During our Friday music assemblies, the whole school have been working on a range of songs from Past and Present - Songs of History and Humanity written by Rebecca lawrence. We are delighted that Rebecca Lawrence has allowed us to upload her music and lyrics so the children can be learning her work at home.
Thank you Rebecca.

Previous School Music Projects 2019/2020
Live Music Now
Live Music Now musicians led a song writing project, working with 120 children, to record and perform their own original compositions. These session were provided by Switch Songwriting, which was delivered in partnership with North Yorkshire County Council, NYCC Music Hub, schools and children’s centres.
During the sessions they explored different instruments and learned to make music as part of a group and write their own songs. The project culminated in a sharing of their work, and a recording of the songs created.
School Teacher Feedback
"I am so thankful that the children have had this opportunity to work with such a talented bunch of musicians! The final performance on the day was superb and the whole audience left the room singing along to the songs. The children were so confident and proud to perform their piece!"
"The children really enjoyed seeing the professional standard technology which was demonstrated and explained to them. Those children who demonstrated an aptitude were encouraged to contribute and, with the time and effort given by the musicians, the end product was stunning. The children were really proud of their song."
Check back later to listen to their final recordings.
