School to launch sec­ond al­bum

Coastal News - - News -

The Whanga­mata Area School is about to launch its sec­ond al­bum, ti­tled Whanga Un­plugged.

In 2017 the school re­leased its first al­bum, Sandy Shores, which was an al­bum com­plete with orig­i­nal con­tent cre­ated by the tal­ented stu­dents from the school.

One of those songs won them a brand new pi­ano, which they have been en­joy­ing the use of this past year.

Whanga Un­plugged 2018 is a laid-back acous­tic al­bum that brings the vibes of Whanga­mata to mu­sic, given its name.

The songs have been writ­ten by stu­dents from Year 5 to 13.

Jes­sica Crock­ett, the pro­ducer of the al­bum and itin­er­ary mu­sic teacher, says “The stu­dents have thor­oughly en­joyed learn­ing mu­sic this year be­cause they are en­cour­aged to be cre­ative.

“These kind of projects boost con­fi­dence in our stu­dents be­cause they be­come fo­cused on learn­ing a skill while tak­ing cre­ativ­ity into their own hands,” Jes­sica said.

■ Whanga Un­plugged is be­ing sold at the school of­fice for $10 and you can also buy the Sandy Shores al­bum there. The al­bum will be re­leased on Spo­tify soon.
