MUSICIAN IN RESIDENCE - ABBEYFIELD SCHOOL

Jessica worked as the Musician in Residence at Abbeyfield School for the period 2014-15 during which time she was responsible for coordinating and running the extracurricular music provision. During her tenancy in this post, Jessica increased participation in extracurricular music lessons by over 100% and led many successful events and projects such as the Caribbean Evening, which was then featured on Northampton's Inspiration FM, the Virtual Music Project modelled on Eric Whitacre's Virtual Choir phenomenon, and workshops with one of Oxford's leading male a cappella ensemble Out of The Blue.

In the Summer term of 2015, Miss Smith led a Virtual Music Project modelled on Eric Whitacre's Virtual Choir phenomenon. Children recorded all the musical parts of All About That Bass by Meghan Trainor individually - vocals, guitars, double bass, drum, piano, trombone - and this was then edited together to create the final massed performance.
