Rydal Penrhos’ thriving Music department has released two more tracks as part of an ongoing learning initiative.
Director of Music Pete Williams has been working with a select group on both songwriting and recording skills using the impressive high-tech equipment that is situated within the department.
Mr Williams is an experienced songwriter who is composing some of the songs himself, specifically tailored to a certain pupil in accordance with their singing style.
A further two releases have been made by the department, with the superb vocal talents of Charlotte Grosart further demonstrated on the song ‘No Place I’d Rather Be’, which was written by Mr Willliams and Deputy Head Boy Miles Poller.
Another outstanding piece came from Emma Hourihane, who produced a powerful performance on the song ‘Through the Storm’ that she wrote herself alongside fellow pupils Tegid Goodman-Jones, Niamh Cook, Mia Cole and Mr Williams.
This is the latest in a long line of exciting initiatives put on by the department, which has gone from strength-to-strength under the leadership of Mr Williams, who is a key contributor to all areas of Rydal Penrhos life.
More releases are set to be revealed in the coming weeks leading up to the summer break thanks to the positive response received for the initiative by hard-working pupils.
Mr Williams, said: “This new scheme is something that really caught the imagination of our pupils, who have picked up songwriting and composing superbly well in the early stages of their development, something that is reflected with the work they have produced so far.”
