Moama Public rapped up in the music

By Alex Gretgrix

STUDENTS at Moama Public School were in for a treat as they got a visit from rapper/ producer Dwayne Broome recently.

The Griffith-based musician was a guest at the school's morning assembly where he performed an original song before spending the day working with the students to write a song of their own.

To Dwayne, music has been a big part of his life and wanted to share his story with the students.

“I've been playing and writing music most of my life,” he said.

“It's helped me through so much and I've written about the good times and the bad. The song I performed for the kids was about my mum.

“She meant so much to me and the fact I could express it through what I love doing means even more.”

And to Dwayne, working with the students is important for not just them, but for him as well.

“School is the foundation you build and the personal development you go through and I think music is a big part of that,” he said.

“It's a way of expressing yourself even through the hard times and I want to teach the students a different way of dealing with those hard times.

“I have a family of my own now and that's made me all the more passionate about teaching these kids.”
