Benefits of Learning an Instrument

16 December 2019

Since the beginning of November, children from Reception to Year 6 have been given the opportunity to learn instruments during the school day on a one-to-one basis. At POWIIS Primary we aim to instill a love and understanding of music in all our students, regardless of age or ability, and the benefits of learning an instrument at school are huge as this Ted Ed video by Anita Collins outlines. On Monday 2nd and Wednesday 4th December, parents had the chance to listen to performances by our 1-1 teaching team, ask questions, and find out more about the programme in general. Choosing an instrument can sometimes be daunting, so children were also offered a free trial lesson on the instrument(s) of their choice.
