Thursday saw a fun day of music workshops for our Year 8 pupils. To complement the fact they will study Pop and Rap music with Mr P-W in the summer term, workshops were organised for the whole year group in Rap music (lyric writing, technique, performance, etc) and in Beat-Boxing (the art of vocal percussion).
The children were lucky to spend time with Ad-Apt (an MC/Rapper currently touring the world as support artist for the DJ 'Wilkinson') and Marv-ill 'Super-lungs' (a Championship Beat-Boxer). All the pupils got to experience both workshops, and a highlight of the day was hearing the two artists perform a free-style rap/beat-box item together.
Much fun was had by all, in addition to learning about and performing two styles of music that were new to many of the children.
