"David and his accompanist joined us for a day working with a primary school in a deprived area of Great Yarmouth. The whole school was spellbound when he sang during their morning assembly, a rare treat. He then took up a challenging brief to help a class of year 6 students to compose a song based around work they had been doing with us on flooding and climate change. In a short period of time, David had the class working away in small groups, brought the whole thing together and made sure everyone was involved in rehearsals. The song was performed to delighted parents and teachers at the end of the day, and an encore was demanded! One pupil who, we were told, was usually disengaged,ended up taking centre stage with a solo part. The children all gained in confidence, having not believed that they could compose and perform a song in just one afternoon. It was a really memorable day."
