ROCK GUITAR CLUB
This has been a really successful enrichment activity led by Mr Crone from Musica kirklees. Pupils have been taught the basics of playing the Guitar and some will take it to another level. They have learnt to play Riffs, Chord Sequences and also Tab notation. They have learnt to play along to songs such as, ‘Smooth Criminal’ (Michael Jackson) ‘White Stripes’ (Seven Nation Army), ‘Smells like Teen Spirit’ (Nirvana), ‘Chasing Cars’ (Snow Patrol) and ‘Use Somebody’ (Kings of Leon). Well done to you all.
A new music club started on the 24th April 2018 which was led by Miss Roulson from Musicakirklees and supported by Miss kaye. Thirteen pupils attended and enjoyed learning and performing together an arrangement of ‘Budapest’ by George Ezra.

2016 Huddersfield’s Got Talent Winner
Sam and his Band were winners of the Huddersfield’s Got Talent competition last year.
Sam plays Electric Guitar in a Band used to be known as ‘Volume 11’ now called ‘V11’ to make the name sound more PUNK in style. There are 5 members of the Band and they rehearse weekly at Ricky’s School of Rock. They perform on a regular basis mostly in the Yorkshire area. They have performed at Huddersfield Town Hall at a charity event. The Band have recently released a single which can be listened to on all the main music sites (like spotify and Applemusic). The single is called ‘1984’.
In school Sam gets together most lunch times with some of his class mates… Oliver (Drums), Jensen (Vocals) and a new member Cody (Bass Guitar). They recently performed ‘Paradise City’ and ‘All Star’ with a transition of the ‘Mii’ theme tune as their own song choice task to their teaching group.
