GCSE Music Students enjoy composition masterclass

Head of Music, Mr Argyrakis, describes a recent composition masterclass for our students at the Barbican in London:

 

Some of our GCSE Music students took part in a trip to the Milton Court Concert Hall for a bespoke Masterclass about Logic Pro X. The Masterclass was run by Guildhall School of Music professor Jono Buchanan and included coaching, led by three graduates from different courses at the music school; recording drums, guitar and vocals. The masteGCSE Music Triprclass showed our pupils, in detail, how to compose for live instruments and record in a professional setting, giving the pupils an insight in to the different ways in which you can manipulate sounds. The Masterclass will be particularly useful for the students moving forward as they will be able to apply the same techniques when recording their own compositions. We all thoroughly enjoyed the trip and the students behaved in an exemplary manner.
