For the past two weeks, First Years have been introduced to ‘endangered instruments’ such as the harp, bassoon, tuba, trombone, viola and French horn. Pupils were treated to a variety of performances by our visiting music teachers and were able to try-out instruments themselves. In many cases, the last opportunity pupils had to engage in such a project will have been in Year Three and pupils found that they were more confident and able to produce a good sound. Mr Hill, Head of Instrumental Music has been impressed by the abilities of so many pupils to create and sustain a good sound, and he has received a number of applications from those wishing to start-up instrumental musical lessons. Caterham School is proud of its team of amazing visiting music teachers and currently every orchestral instrument is offered.
Parents will receive a letter in due course, but if anyone is already interested in studying one of the instruments it is important to let Mr Hill know, to avoid a long waiting list.
