Lockdown Music

It is "Music for All" at West Hill Park during lockdown, where even those who don't have regular instrumental lessons get stuck in alongside those more experienced!  Their class music lessons are part of our Distance Learning Programme and you can see some of the videos they have submitted below through Google Classroom, along with Mrs Blunn's comments on their excellent creations!
