On Friday 20th January three of our bassoon students visited St John the Baptist Primary School to take part in a promotional workshop with students from English Martyrs, St John the Baptist and Robert Smyth Academy.
The afternoon consisted of a masterclass by renowned bassoon soloist Laurence Perkins, ensemble playing with all senior bassoonists and secondary school students teaching primary students how to play the bassoon. You can learn more about Laurence at http://laurenceperkins.com/
Our students were professional and caring teachers throughout and a credit to the music department of English Martyrs.
This thoroughly enjoyable afternoon was held in partnership with the Leicestershire Schools Music Service, through whom we are able to provide the bassoon lessons which are available in school. If you would like to learn the bassoon please speak to Mr Carter.
