Canonbury school have a blast with new brass instruments

Canonbury School pupils Ayaan, Rahma, Jermaine and George, have a blast with their brand new brass instruments.

The horns, cornets and euphoniums were purchased with more than �16,500 raised in an auction of promises - including everything from baby massages to help with gardening.

Armed with the 60 new instruments, pupils are set to learn to play and form a school brass band.

Matt Britt, headteacher at the school, said: “We want music to be a pathway to success in learning for children who may have felt a sense of failure in learning via the core curriculum. By broadening the quality and offer of music at Canonbury, where all children learn a new skill at the same time, we are enabling children to build success and self-esteem.”
