To ensure we provide a rich, varied and exciting music curriculum we work with specialist teachers to ensure at least one year group has the opportunity to learn how to play an instrument.
We are currently working with Nottingham Music Hub to provide 1 hour of guitar lessons for years 4 & 5 on alternate weeks. Mr Marshall teaches us all the skills to play the guitar.
Last year we started to provide additional guitar sessions after school with Mr. Bickerstaffe from True Music. This has been very popular and the children are making great progress. We will be continued to provide additional guitar (and possibly ukulele) sessions after school throughout the year2015-2016.
