Barnet Battle of the Bands Champions 2020

Just before half term Barnet Educational Arts Trust held their first ‘Battle of the Bands’ at Woodhouse College. Twelve bands from local schools including Woodhouse College, Queen Elizabeth Boys Grammar School and Henrietta Barnett School all competed. Each band performed an original song and a cover song to a distinguished judging panel consisting of industry composers who work in both film and television.



The London Academy band, The Four Fours, comprising Melyne Woolcock (Yr. 11), Kyle Dimaculangan (Yr. 11), Lucas Mendes (Yr.10) and Milan Bishop (Yr.9), performed an original song and a Stevie Wonder medley. Their outstanding performances won them the title of ‘Barnet Battle of the Bands Champions’, having fought off stiff competition including other school bands comprising A Level music students. Congratulations to the students on this huge achievement. The students won five hours recording time in a local studio and are eager to start work on an EP.
