Try An Instrument Day

7th February 2019

Primary School Musical Beginnings

Oxfordshire Music Hub ran a brilliant “Try an Instrument” day last week. There was a woodwind room, a string room, a brass room and a percussion room – there was even a harp in a corridor. The place was jammed with small people attempting to get notes out of every imaginable instrument, with cheerful peripatetic teachers helping them blow down the right end. I can’t even describe the din in there, but my kids came away hugely enthused. Apparently they’re taking up trombone and french horn…😮
