Music Promise - Lenamore Primary School

Well... their own pop charts to be exact.

Using Music Promise funding the school invested in 'garage band' and both teachers and students have enjoyed learning to compose using this new technology.

On Music City day,the 21st of June, St Therese Primary joined primary schools across the city in having a special concert for students and parents alike. Their garage band skills were demonstrated.

Students decided to show off their garage band songs via pop videos 'Top of The Pops' style - counting down their top five favourite garage band compositions. They even made the pop videos themselves to show case their school and neighbourhood.

Take a look at the video below - the students are awesome.
