GCSE musicians were fully immersed in the world of Brazilian samba music

Year 10 and Year 11 GCSE musicians were fully immersed in the world of Brazilian samba music as Dan Skeats, percussion teacher, delivered an exciting programme that explored the importance of rhythm through practical work… lots of very LOUD practical work. The rest of the school community were treated to fantastic performances at break and lunch which fitted perfectly with the school’s celebration of its international ethos on the same day.

The school’s Subject Leader for Music, Mr Gordon, said that “students really enjoyed the practical experience and the Arts faculty continues to prepare for its forthcoming Artsmark Platinum assessment.” Further masterclasses are already being planned for next year and he hopes that the relationship with Essex Music services continues to develop.
