Professional musician Lewis Nitikman dropped by to lend Pat a hand.

Pat wants to become a musician himself when he leaves school so after a chat, the two of them popped into our studio at school to compose this number:

They hope you like it.

Now Lewis has left Pat some homework. He wants Pat to come up with some lyrics to turn their tune into a song.


Listen to their music again and with a classmate, bounce some ideas around.

  • What subject matter springs to mind?
  • What music does it remind you of?
  • What topics do you like talking about?
  • Can you help Pat out in this as he is just learning the trade and could do with some assistance?

You have fifteen minutes to jot down some ideas, then have a plenary to see what lyrics and lines and topics other students in your class have come up with.
