We have a small army of singers and musicians, but they are talented in so many other ways. Our new series of articles by junior journalists, and interviews in our Student Spotlight segment will let you know more about the world our students live in and what they think about music and life! Our first story (below) has already been picked up by the Inish Times, and is a lovely piece written by Shannon Harkin, 5th class Scoil Naomh Padraig, Drumfries!
Five Reasons why I love The Music Box by Shannon Harkin
Every Tuesday from 5pm to 6pm, I go to singing classes at the Sliabh Sneacht Centre, Drumfries. I am part of The Sliabh Sneacht Singers and my teacher is Bernie Doherty. Here are five reasons why I love singing class:
We get a lot of opportunities to record songs and visit a recording studio, which not many children or even adults get to experience.
Singing class is a lot of fun, although we do work very hard and learn lots of new things.
We get to sing solos of our choice at our Christmas and summer shows, and also learn harmonies etc. I like that our families get the chance to hear us sing at these shows.
I love singing, and The Music Box has really helped to build my confidence.
Going to class is really enjoyable because my teacher is very nice and helpful, and I also like spending time with the friends that I have made.
I would recommend these classes to anyone of any age who loves to sing. It is such an enjoyable pastime.
