Listen to Emily's song

Emily was referred to #Focus5 after her mum wanted to help her build her confidence and to have a greater understanding of her options after school.

She has gone an exciting journey since we first met her; finding her way and finding her voice. After visiting the Academy of Music and Sound with our keyworker, Emily felt inspired. An application for their Level 3 music course soon followed and so did an application to Exeter College. Part of the application process meant that Emily had to sing for the tutors, an extraordinary achievement. Needless to say, Emily impressed and was granted a place on both courses.  

Emily decided to accept the offer from Exeter College, where she now studies. However, during her time with #Focus5 she was also busy with our partner organisation Sound Gallery. She had a few sessions in their studio and recorded her beautiful interpretation of Pinball Wizard by The Who. You can listen to her tack below.
