Available for First, Primary, Middle and Upper schools, working with pupils to write their own school song.

"We had a fantastic day with Liz writing a school song. The pupils were really inspired and under Liz's direction were able to create an amazing song that our school has sung on a number of occasions. All the ideas came from the children and Liz enabled them to collate their ideas into a song structure with lyrics and melody. The pupils thoroughly enjoyed the day and I as their teacher learnt a tremendous amount as well. I cannot recommend it enough! I still hear pupils around the school singing the song (and not just the ones that were part of writing it!)"
