New Beats Song Writing Project

​Our ‘New Beats’ recital team work with students of all ages at KS3/4 on a course that looks to break down the perceived barriers to song writing.  

Students will explore...  

  • style
  • instrumentation
  • chord sequence theory and  
  • lyric writing  

… whilst working with a professional vocalist, bassist, guitarist and drummer.  
The course is practically based with students encouraged to use their own instrumental or vocal skills. By the end of the course students will have their own song ready to be recorded and/or performed. The course lasts for 2 sessions (these do not need to be consecutive) which includes a performance in week one and can be tailored to the needs of your students.  This is currently provided by the Trust free at source to maintained secondary schools on a Tuesday morning between 9am-12pm.

Subject to availability.
