Session 2006/07

On Monday June 25th 2007, the guitarists in P5, 6 & 7 gave a concert for the P4s in the school gym hall – a grand acoustic. Next session’s new guitarists will be selected from P5 and it seemed like a nice idea to let them see where it was all leading. When the concert was finished, we decided to re-record a few items so that the pupils could experience “studio recording” in addition to “live recording.” Each has its special features:

Live – the buzz which a live audience brings to the occasion

Studio – a bigger sound as there are fewer bodies in the hall to soak up the sound

Live Takes

By The Rivers of Babylon By The Rivers of Babylon O When The Saints (Solo by Rachel in P5) Saints Something Stupid Something Stupid Toccata Toccata (we gave 2 performances of this back to back – one at normal speed and one at break-neck speed just for the fun on it)

Studio Takes

I’m A Believer I’m A Believer (Studio) My Heart Will Go On (from Titanic) Titanic (studio) When The Boat Comes In (Solo by Hayley in P7) When The Boat Comes In (Hayley) Polish Dance (Solo by Hayley in P7) Polish Dance (Hayley)

  1. mr coady u should change the primarys we are in coz the p5 are p6’s and the p6’s are p7’s now 😉

  2. Hi Lori

    Thanks for your comments. I know what you mean about the classes. When we do more recordings this year, you’ll be marked as P6s but, on the ones we have already done, they to stay marked as P5s so that you can look back and hear the progress you’ve made between P5 and later on. Also, when your grandchildren are in P5, you can let them hear what your playing was like in P5.

  3. hi mr coady are the p6s gettin to do solos at the musical evening because the p6s last year that are now p7s never got to do solos at the last musical evening

    Thanks for you comment. Did you ever wonder if last year’s P6s perhaps had the offer to perform a solo but didn’t fancy it? This year we don’t want the concert to run so late and so each group has to cut down a little. There are many groups: guitars;choir; brass; recorders; dancers. So we will most likely stick to group pieces. There will be plenty of chance for people to offer solos when we do our concert for the P4s in the third term. They can be recorded more easily that day and then they can appear on this site 🙂

  5. hi Mr Coady the musical evening this year (2010) was amazing and cameron did really well with his solo!!!!!!
