Musicians in Room 14

Room 14 were busy creating musical compositions based around the theme of winter. We recorded ourselves performing and were able to see how we looked and sounded when we watched it back. We were also able to identify the things we would improve on or things we liked about our performance. This was really useful for our big performance when Ms. Clerkin’s 2nd class from Room 1 came to watch us. They were the perfect audience!
