Soul Music Show sells out
Categories: Press Releases
Clive Rainbow, Teacher of Music at New College said: “Taking part in live performances really helps students to reach another level. They’re building the skills and knowledge they need – but this is all about bringing it together on the night.”
Clive continued: “To be really effective as musicians, students need to be able to perform in a range of musical styles. The Soul shows are just one of the three different styles that students will perform in during the year - to increase their versatility and their employability.”
All of the first-year students who performed are studying the BTEC Certificate in Music Performance. This practical-based course helps to tie the real world aspects of performing as a musician with the theory. In addition to these music performances, students are also carrying out in-depth written assignments including how soul music developed, the social, ethnic and racial issues.
Students who took part in the show included Luke Morrey, Sophie Williams and Jade de Monyé.
Luke Morrey said: “We had a few problems rehearsing but it really worked when we were out there on the stage.” Sophie Williams said: “It was nerve wracking but I really enjoyed it. This course pushes you but it’s fun.” Jade de Monyé said: “It really came together when we were on the stage – I’ve never danced so much and the audience really responded to us.”
