Today Ms Miller, a music teacher from James Gillespies High School, came to our assembly to tell us about all the exciting musical opportunities that are offered at the High School. One of the the S3 pupils who is a member of the pipe band also told us all about what is involved in playing with the band. The pipe band won fourth place in a competition last year and have played at lots of venues and events including at Murrayfield.
Ms Miller also explained how children who play instruments in our school will be able to join bands at Gillespies in the future. She also told us that in S1 if you don't yet play an instrument you can audition for a range of instruments. In addition, she also told us that the children can go to a free lesson with the pipe band on the 30th October at the High School to find out if they might like to take up lessons. More information to follow.
