GarageBand comes to Old Ford Primary

20 children from years 1 and 2 were chosen to compose and produce their own music using Apple GarageBand in a three week project with music specialist Joe Allen.

From Adam’s epic “DJ Adam” to Zahraa’s masterpiece “Exciting Music”, the children wowed their peers in a special sharing assembly before half term. Each child received a certificate of achievement for their excellent music.

You can listen on the school YouTube channel.
