Oasis Lockdown Music Competition
We were delighted to run our music competition in 2020-2021 regardless of the lockdown situation caused by the global pandemic. You will have seen in our blog piece 'Music is so much more than we realise' that music has great benefits in letting us know more about the world and people in it. It can also improve our mood and bring us positive thoughts and messages - and we were absolutely thrilled to see our young people being able to express themselves and find flow and joy through participating in this competition.
The winners of the Oasis Music Competition will be awarded a range of prestigious and exciting prizes, according to the category the students won in. Students who won performing categories will be invited to take part in a masterclass with an industry professional, where they will be given a chance to perform alongside receiving tips and mentoring on how to take the next steps with their performing careers. For the winners of the song writing and original song categories, we are hosting an online songwriting session for students, where they will extend their understanding of compositional techniques and using digital audio workstations.
We are delighted to share the winning and the runner-up entries from our KS3, KS4 and KS5 students with you.
