Pupils who are enjoying brass music lessons with Mr Traves, were surprised this week when Mrs Hacker joined them for a carol or two. Allthough she wasn’t technically playing a Brass Instrument the group were very pleased to have her join them.
Mr Traves has a number of pupils across several primary schools in the area and is provided as part of an initiative by Cranbrook Town Band to get youngsters playing music. Lessons are free although a small charge is made to cover instrument insurance costs. Pupils have played in several school assemblies and go on to play in the Cranbrook Youth band who in turn have participated in a number of concerts with the town band throughout the year.
