This year, some of our children in Year 5 are having a special lesson from a peripatetic music teacher where they are learning how to play the guitar.
Initially, the teacher showed the children how to hold the guitar at a slant so that they could see the strings on the instrument. Then, the children have been learning to play simple notes. The group has also started reading the notes in a book and trying to play these successfully.
After one of the sessions, Chelsea said, “I am enjoying building up my new skills and showing what I have learnt each week.” Archie-Lee added, “I was inspired to take up a musical instrument by a guitarist I watched on the internet.” Written by Lacey Thomson and Ayva Smith
