Hullo sweet thangs - we have 2 lovely videos to share with you from two awesome former students. First up we have Nancy Churnin's biography of Irving Berlin followed by Rosie J. Pova's Sarah's Song. While they are really different from each other, what they have in common is a great love and connection with their subject matter and beautiful poetic language.
Take a peek and let me know what you think in the comments xox
