Mu­si­cian Lau­ren Ray spoke to stu­dents of Dr Chal­loner’s High School in Lit­tle Chal­font about the busi­ness and cre­ative side of the mu­sic in­dus­try.

Lau­ren said: “It was a great day at Dr Chal­loner’s – I spoke to a group of stu­dents about work­ing In the mu­sic in­dus­try and about my own new mu­sic and then be­cause the weather was so nice we quickly pulled to­gether an out­door gig for the stu­dents dur­ing lunch.”

Lau­ren has re­cently set up her own in­de­pen­dent la­bel TAMLAN Records and is re­leas­ing her own mu­sic. BRIND­LEY House Child­care Cen­tre has ex­panded its French classes for younger chil­dren.

The Lit­tle Lan­guage Academy teaches chil­dren aged three to four years of age at the cen­tre on Burkes Road, Bea­cons­field, and now chil­dren aged two-tothree-years-old will be able to en­joy the weekly ses­sions as well.

Deb­bie Lo­max, owner, said: “We are de­lighted to have been asked to in­crease our weekly French ses­sions at Brind­ley House. The best time for a child to learn another lan­guage is when they are young and they learn through play and ex­plo­ration. Our classes of­fer lots of fun and in­ter­ac­tive ex­pe­ri­ences, us­ing sto­ries, games, pup­pets, songs and other ac­tiv­i­ties.”

Sarah Fa­hey, man­ager of Brind­ley House Child­care Cen­tre said: “Our chil­dren re­ally en­joy their weekly French classes, and we have been amazed at how quickly they have learnt so many new French words and phrases. They love all the won­der­ful props which ac­com­pany ev­ery class, and es­pe­cially en­joy singing in French, which our staff like join­ing in with too.

“We are


at in­tro­duc­ing the classes to our younger chil­dren, and look for­ward to watch­ing them progress”.
