The results are in for Accent Music Education Hub's 2017 Song Writing Competition.
There were 5 entries this year from two schools and the standard was very high. Comments from judge, Steve Millington, included 'social message', 'Beatles type chorus', 'a good hook' and 'historical content.' All entries and comments can be seen on the Westbrook Old Hall Primary School website.
The winning song 'Up Up Up' was written by two Y5 girls from Westbrook Old Hall Primary School. Judge, Steve Millington, said that the song had ' a nice verse, good chorus hook, counter melodies and pop potential.' The song has a strong structure and has three vocal lines at the end. The two songwriters joined forces with another pupil to record three vocal harmonies in total.
The prize of £250 will be presented to the girls at Westbrook Old Hall Primary school in December. Previous winners have included Gorse Covert and St. Bede's Catholic Junior school. The competition is currently in its third year.
