The winner of the 'Accent' Song Writing Competition 2015 is Amy Groves from

John Oates, competition organiser and Leading Practitioner for Primary Music and Accent Music Education Hub said 'This is a great start to the competition. All the entrants deserve praise for their use of lyrics and melody. Amy's song has a very strong structure and clear melodic lines - the chorus has been going around in my head for weeks. I look forward to hearing next year's songs.'
