Pupils take opportunity to take music notes from professional

The Irene McCormack Catholic College Year 10 and 11 students took part in a two-day song-writing workshop, learning about the music industry as well.

�The students formed groups of four and were set the task of creating an original song,� head of performing arts Kylie Malam said.

�Day two took the songs from an idea to reality � the pieces created by the students were recorded, mixed and ready to be heard.

�Many genres were explored from acoustic, to blues, to rock. The 16 students are to be commended for their enthusiasm and professionalism.

�Their attitude and willingness to get involved from the very beginning made the two days very productive.

�The future of song-writing is in good hands.�
