This week I popped into Western Primary School to see some of the music lessons.
James Peacock is their tutor and a guitar lesson was underway. Thirty three children at Western Primary School receive music tuition. Pupils can learn to play, guitar, piano and drums.
Some of the guitar lessons are supported by Wallsend Children’s Community, all start as beginners and after 10 weeks children would be expected to be able to play four chords, but have the potential to progress. When I was there I was lucky enough to hear the children playing music from, Harry Potter.
Keep an eye on Wallsend Online to find out more about Western Primary School when in April they will be our featured, ‘School of the Month’.
