A talented pupil from Wisbech Grammar School performed at a competition with a song she had written in just two hours.
Natasha Richardson was encouraged by head of music Jane Missin to enter the WGS House Music Competition and explore her musical ability.
Natasha, who is a 3rd former, performed her self-penned track ‘Songwriter’s Dream’, which she wrote in two hours.
She studies music at Wisbech Grammar School and has been playing the piano since she was eight years old.
Last year her parents gave her a guitar for her 14th birthday, and Natasha has not looked back since - writing her own songs and taking guitar lessons.

“I found inspiration from my own experiences when I wrote ‘Songwriter’s Dream’; the song focuses on questioning your place in the world and worrying about the future while focusing on the present day,” Natasha said.
Jane Missin, head of music, commented: “Music has many benefits in helping young people express themselves and discover who they are. It is great for improving well-being and mental health.
