A bright and talented rising star from Gainsborough was privileged to be among a lucky few invited to attend a special event organised by the BBC.

The BBC Introducing Masterclass sessions see local unsigned and emerging acts from around the country brought together to hear advice and music from established artists, DJs and industry experts.

Queen Elizabeth High School student and Gainsborough songstress Lizzie Goddard, 16, has been wowing audiences around Lincolnshire and the county for a number of years.

Her talent and reputation earned her a place at a recent Masterclasss in Glasgow.

“I’ve had my songs played by BBC Introducing afew times,” said Lizzie. “And for some reason, out of the thousands of amazing people that they play, then decided to choose me to go along to a musicians’ masterclass.”

After the long journey to Glasgow, Lizzie said that it was an inspiring and worthwhile experience.

“There were some really cool people there,” she said.

“I was listening to talks from radio DJs like Jen Long and Huw Stepehens, which was really cool, then there was Ben Howard which was wicked because he won a couple of Brit Awards and I love him.”

Lizzie continued: “All of us musicians were told how to do what we want to do and the best ways to the top and how to get your music out there on the internet.”

She added: “I learned so, so much and can’t wait to put it to good use.”
