Our Latest School Project

Having worked in the music industry for many years, I have access to the best music producers and recording studios in South Africa. We will be doing a yearly concert with our students, and we will also be working on some recording projects. ‘This is me’ from the Greatest Showman, was our project for 2018. After some intense group rehearsals, I took all our students into the studio and recorded the song. This gave the students excellent recording experience – they totally blew me away. It was an incredibly demanding song, and with the help of our brilliant teachers, we recorded this track and got over 10 000 views on Facebook!
