Mrs Heaton: October 2017
Base 3 have been thoroughly enjoying learning to play a trombone or trumpet for the last few weeks. They are now able to play in time to a piece of music as well as counting the beats in their heads while playing at the same time — no mean feat!
It has been a joy to watch their confidence grow as they become more able to handle the instruments and control the sounds they produce. Working as hard as they have has meant that they have already learnt 4 pieces out of the ten that is on the programme.
It is such a marvellous opportunity for each and every child and we, as a school, feel very privileged to be able to welcome the wider opportunities team into our family. Mr Birch is an exceptional brass teacher and offers an enthusiastic lesson each week for the children to engage in — we feel very lucky to have benefited from his vast experience.
The children are very much looking forward to demonstrating their new found skills to their parents and carers on November 30th at 9:30.
We would love to thank you all for your support of the children and your patience while they practise!
Enjoy the photos!
