Last Wednesday the Year 10 Music students went to Ferrymead to visit the recording studio, Orange Studios. The girls had the opportunity to take a tour of the studio, operate the sound desk and perform a piece to be recorded. An enjoyable activity was manipulating their voices to sound very low or extremely high like a chipmunk. An interactive and fun day for all.
