King Arthur's School Songwriting

Yesterday, StrodeLive producers with Dan Shaw recorded the Songwriting Competition winners from King Arthur's School. Lily and Freya wrote an accomplished song and enjoyed adding drums and a full arrangement. The song was produced and mixed during the day. We hope that they continue to write great songs and post some on Soundcloud soon. Strode College runs a summer school in July that includes a day recording, a day on mixing techniques and a day learning how to set up an indie label. Places and details available from the StrodeTheatre Website.
