World Service Project Band Workshop with KS3 and 4 musicians.
On Thursday afternoon our Y9 and 10 GCSE classes (with some specially selected Y7 students) took part in a workshop with the band World Service Project.
The band play punk-jazz music and performed one of their pieces to the students and discussed how they put a piece of music together before breaking off into three groups. In their separate groups the students worked with members of the band to compose new music in the same style, before coming back together to perform to each other. The session ended with the students asking the band questions about their work, influences and the music industry. Overall, the afternoon was a great success and the students learnt a lot about how to work collaboratively as musicians and how to create their own music. Thank you World Service Project for coming in to work with us!
