Mr Preston comes into school on a weekly basis, to teach brass to small groups of pupils. Our children are learning cornet, trumpet and trombone!

Last year, on the recommendation of Steve Auster, the music adviser at Sunderland LA (Sunderland Music Hub), we purchased some special plastic trombones, called 'P-Bones' - they've gone down exceptionaly well. Our children like them because they come in different colours, and they're lightweight too - and the spund they produce is no different to a regular trombone. We were fortunate enough to get the P-Bones at a subsidised price, thanks to Sunderland Music Hub.

Every term the children perform in a special concert, for the whole school, to which their mums and dads are invited - we always get a fantastic turn-out, and over time the standard of each performance has gotten better and better.
