John from Milltown Studios comes into school on a Friday to work with quite a few children in developing their musical skills. Focussing on drums, guitar and bass he is instilling a lot of passion and confidence in a range of styles, and they are sounding great! I get to hear a lot of what they do at lunchtime, and the music is right up my street.
Back in October, they put on a concert to raise money to buy instruments for these sessions and his students from Grindleford took part, with amazing results. Everyone who went said it was a terrific night out, and they were very impressed with how well the children are playing.
Here is a short video to celebrate the night and what they achieved, and a sneak preview of the instruments they bought 🙂
If your child doesn’t currently work with John, and you think they would benefit (they would!) then contact the school office for more information or visit his website.
