Composing with King No-One

Emerging UK band, King No-One, came in to deliver a composition workshop to students studying music in Years 9, 10 and 11.

The band consists of lead singer, pianist and guitarist Zach; pianist, vocalist and guitarist Joe; and James on the drums and vocals. The band spoke about their career so far, selling out venues, their band as a movement and discussed how they go about writing their songs. They performed 'Two Islands' and their new hit 'Toxic Love'.

Our students had prepared musical ideas before the workshop and the band worked with the students' composition during the session.

Comments from our students –

'Interesting to see the composition process and their work ethic. It motivated students to work on song writing'.

'Cool that they played my guitar!'

'Interesting to hear where they compose and how they feel about it.'

'It was cool to hear their new song on the day it was released'.
