On 7 March, visitors from Colchester Institute came to Colchester Academy for a concert and workshop. A dazzling performance to our Year 7’s was followed by a song writing workshop for thirteen Year 9 students.
All participants had an opportunity to participate in vocal exercises, rhythm work, and guitar technique. Throughout the workshop, the students worked in small groups, sharing ideas and composing their own music.
After 90 mins, all groups had composed a song each. All performances were successful, and the students had a great time sharing ideas and learning the basics of song-writing.
