Alice has completed her challenge, playing a different brass instrument in each of her last 10 lessons – the Bb (pronounced B flat) tuba this time, the largest of all brass instruments. This instrument has made quite an impression on the children at school and Alice has been asked to bring it back for the last assembly of term on Monday.
The school has asked for music books from the ‘Music Express’ series which contains music that is photocopyable (is that word in the Oxford English Dictionary?!) and other materials for groups of child players and to help plan music lessons as well as for the school windband.
Alice is hoping to raise enough money to buy some other music books as well.
Please would you now give any sponsorship money that you have pledged, handing payments to the Manor School office in clearly marked envelopes, or to Dion Dawson at band practice.
If you prefer to make a payment online the bank account is Sort code 30 93 93 / Account number 18037268, with a payment reference of “Windband fundraising” and your name.
Thank you for your support over these last 10 weeks from Alice and other budding musicians at Manor School…
…and a big “Well Done, Alice” from Blewbury Brass Band!
