Alumni

Have a squizz at our incredible alumni and what they are up to now

A number of Play It Strange songwriters that have had their songs recorded for our annual CDs are making cool inroads out into the world. Here we have a selection of those who hit the ground running when they walked out the school gates. With songwriting, performance and recording experience they were capable and poised for action. Have a scroll through. There will be more to come..
