Brassy assembly!

Music teacher Jonathan Cushion was guest visitor at our whole school assembly yesterday. He demonstrated a range of brass instruments including trombone, cornet, French horn and trumpet,   playing a variety of entertaining pieces. Afterwards, the Prep children queued up to have a go!

Mr Cushion offers music lessons at HOHS in all brass instruments – anyone interested is asked to contact Mrs Greene for more information. Instruments may be hired from Mr Cushion.

Cello lessons available

During the Tuesday Prep School assembly, Miss Hallam, one of our visiting instrumental teachers, gave our pupils a cello demonstration,  showing them what a lovely sound the instrument can make.

Jennie (Year 2) was lucky enough to be picked to have a try herself.
Jennie-celloMiss Hallam has space for some more cello students. If students are interested in taking up cello lessons a form can be obtained from Mrs Greene. The school also has two small cellos available for hire, and Miss Hallam is willing to give a short taster session to interested students.

Other instrumental lessons are also available and we have a limited supply of instruments that students can hire. More information can be obtained from Mrs Greene.
