Key Stage 4 sing the blues

We were delighted to welcome Doug and Nigel to Pitcheroak School on 25.06.19 to work with students in Key Stage 4 on a songwriting blues workshop. The children were given a background to Blues music and learnt that the blues derived from the slaves singing in order to make themselves feel better. The students then proceeded to write an original song inspired by the heavy rain outside. Doug and Nigel guided the students to phrase the lyrics in to a song. After a period of rehearsal the students then performed the song to the Head Teacher in the afternoon. All students that were involved thoroughly enjoyed their day and enjoyed the performance aspect.
