Musos want more in the North Burnett
LONG-TIME music mentor Dr Geoff Walden believes that teamwork, brain development, diligence and confidence are all invaluable benefits that North Burnett children could gain from learning music.
And it’s the reason he has encouraged four Gayndah boys to form a band, one being his grandson Noah Coulson.
“We asked Noah if he knew of any kids at school who would like to play in a band, and he came back saying he knew four kids in his class who were interested- so we got them together and I started to teach them music starting with the basics,” Dr Walden said.
“My goal is to get more of a music scene happening here.”
Dr Walden has been teaching music for more than 50 years and he has never worked with a group as young as this one.
Coulson sings and plays guitar alongside his classmates Donald MacGregor, Nathan Banks and Asher Bryant.
Dr Walden is surprised by their dedication and abilities.
“To have four quite talented young people all in the one class is a bit unbelievable to me,” he said.
