This term I have had the opportunity to play an instrument. Others were new to playing instruments.  We all had fun as Gareth Marsh makes the lesson engaging.

So far, I think the taster music lessons are entertaining, educational and fun! I have learned how to play a range of pieces including ‘Shape of you’ by Ed Sheeran and the ‘EastEnders’ theme tune to name a few.

One thing I liked was having the opportunity to get back into playing the piano, although you can play guitar and drums as well. In future I would like to learn more instruments such as guitar.

I would definitely recommend trying a music lesson with Gareth because you will have fun whilst learning something new!
