Music

Music

In music we have been inspired by Andra Day's song 'Rise Up' and a poem from our English lessons, 'Still I Rise' by Maya Angelou. These pieces talk about rising up to overcome trouble. In Andra Day's song, she is rising up alongside someone to support through their troubles. In contrast, Maya Angelou rises above the discrimination she is experiencing herself.

We wrote our own lyrics, using song-form structure, offering support and love to someone who was struggling. We used the metaphor of 'rising up' as the key theme of our songs. 

'From tiny acorns, great forests grow.'
