Talented schoolchildren composed their own piece of music – with the help of a few professionals.

Students at Troon Primary proudly release the song, titled The Summer Beat, after writing and recording the song with local performer Scott Nicol.

The song, which is available to download on all major platforms, saw pupils in five primary classes let their creativity run free.

Scott said Live Ayrshire: “The students were simply exceptional in their words, their creativity and their enthusiasm.

“They wanted to write about summer and we absolutely captured that vibe.

“The rhythm, the music, the lyrics, the feeling of ‘Dancing by the water like diamonds’… it’s all there.

“I brought in the wonderful Jamie Clark to record them and he did a great job mixing and playing the track.

“The kids loved the whole experience of writing, singing, recording and helping design the artwork and we loved it and had so much fun.

“I have to thank Mr Paterson and Mr Sturdy for all their encouragement and hard work and thank you very much to the Troon Parents Association for making this possible.”

The students called themselves “The Fantastic Fives” and are the latest group to be mentored by Scott, who leads a talented stable of young musicians under the “Possibility Screams” banner.
