Year 8 student enters national song-writing competition with a beautiful piece about war

Elise Neal in Year 8 has been entered into a national song-writing competition after her teacher, Ms. Barrett, spotted her talent back in Year 7.

The theme for the competition is the impact of war/conflict upon communities and Elise has been working on this song since around the October half term. She recently recorded the song, and here lyrics are pictured below (please click to enlarge). She sings and plays the piano on this recording and is such a talented young lady.

We wish her all the best with the competition, and if you would like to know more about it please click here. In addition, Elise is also considering The BBC Young Composer Competition 2020 – watch this space!

Please take a listen to her brilliant performance below:
