Here we go – rockin’ all over the school

Mu­si­cal interest am­pli­fied with ‘epic’ ses­sions

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Lorry Park -

Eger­ton Pri­mary School pupils have been learn­ing mod­ern mu­sic and took part in a school “rock day”.

An­drew Will­moth, act­ing head teacher, said mu­sic was an im­por­tant and grow­ing fo­cus of school life and many pupils al­ready had in­stru­men­tal lessons, choir trips and vi­o­lin con­certs.

But when pupils said they wanted to play more mod­ern mu­sic, teacher and rock gui­tarist Nick Davies stepped in.

Mr Will­moth said: “Nick brought drum kits, bass and elec­tric gui­tars, key­boards, am­pli­fiers – in fact ev­ery­thing re­quired for an en­thu­si­as­tic bunch of 10 and 11-year-olds to rock out.

“Ad­di­tional help from par­ents made an ex­cit­ing day pos­si­ble and the shared view of the pupils was that the event was epic!”
