In year 9 students start to work towards their pathways and hone their practical music making and performance skills on either the keyboard, guitar, drum kit, voice or ukulele. Students use their listening skills to evaluate their own and each other’s work and performances. They learn how to compose, arrange and produce their own music using Logic and also start to learn about the music industry through different topics.
Each year students have the opportunity to perform in school and public events such as the Arts Shows, the Local Offer, events hosted by the Leicester-Shire Music Service, Winter Wonderland Show, and festivals hosted by other schools and colleges. Students have also enjoyed visiting local music providers, studios and going to see musicians such as Bugsy Malone, Akala, as well as live local bands, DJs and grime artists.
