Music, Maestro, Please
With the exciting expansion of the peripatetic music service here at FHS, more pupils than ever are being given the opportunity to have one to one music lessons on the instrument of their choice. Students lucky enough to have received a letter from the department inviting them to try-outs are now having lessons on a range of acoustic/ electronic instruments at specially arranged times during the school day.
It’s not easy; students must practise regularly and catch up on any work from other subjects they might have missed. Miss Dignam who has worked one day a week in the school for many years is a popular woodwind teacher here at school. Our goal by 2016 is to have a large ‘swing’ band to take on tour!
