Today was one of those magical days that you remember for a long time…
We have been recording a CD of our favourite songs today and I was so proud of the children for their energy, enthusiasm and commitment to singing the best that they possibly could. It has been such fun, listening to them perform, watching them experience the thrill of sitting behind professional recording equipment and considering the fact that they have come a very long way with their singing.
Not least the fact that we needed no more than three takes for any song to get it just right. After all, for most of us, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to record a CD – I certainly know that I won’t be stepping into a recording studio any time soon! I do believe that what we have achieved today will be appreciated, listened to and loved by so many parents, friends, relatives and people associated with the school. I said to the children today that in years to come when they pull out their Westwood with Iford CD from 21st November 2014 to share with their own families, which by then will have been converted to the latest hi tech digital media no doubt, that they can say “I was there” and that “if you listen carefully you might just hear me”.
Well done everyone, I do hope that you enjoyed it every bit as much as I did, you were amazing. I won’t give too much away, but there are a lot of songs, individual class performaces and a staff track, all recorded during the course of the day on the CD to enjoy. I will try to upload some clips over the weekend to give you a taste of what we have achieved, but for now I will just reflect on what a fantastic job the children all did today.
Here is a short video of the four classes recording their individual songs. Have a great weekend everyone.
