Students Benefit From Workshops Held With Musician Henry Priestman

On Friday 21st June, Longcroft School welcomed back musician Henry Priestman, who ran a song writing workshop with selected students from Years 9 and 10.

Not only will this serve as valuable experience for the students, as it will help them develop their composition skills, but students also had the opportunity to perform their songs at Beverley Folk Festival.

As with Henry’s previous workshops, the songs were creative, memorable and eclectic, with all the students involved finding it to be a rewarding experience.

Julie Harris, Curriculum Leader of Performing Arts, said:

“This is the fourth year Henry has come into Longcroft and as with each previous occasion his enthusiasm is infectious. The students created some really interesting piece – some songs were reflective and others were lively.”

“It’s a great opportunity for them to work with a songwriter of his calibre and they all enjoyed to performing at Beverley Folk Festival.”

A regular and much-loved performer at Beverley Folk Festival, Henry was a member of the band 1980s/90s band The Christians and has subsequently forged himself a career as a respected music producer, composer, singer and songwriter.
