Somersham Town Band Primary School Project

180 year 3 to 6 children from Somersham Primary School .had a blow. on a brass instrument on Monday, September 10th. This followed a launch assembly when the whole school came in to the music of Toy Story, played by a contingent of Somersham Town Band, and clapped along to German Oomph Pa (sic) before being shown how a brass instrument works by Musical Director, David Chambers, who demonstrated with a length of hose pipe and half a fizzy drink bottle! Teachers were then invited to try blowing one of the instruments much to the pupils. amusement. New head-teacher, Mr Haynes, drew the loudest applause with his masterful growling on the bass! A team of band members then toured classrooms to give pupils there opportunity to .have a blow.. This diversion from literacy or numeracy was greeted with great enthusiasm and a cacophony of noise echoed through corridors. Many children expressed a wish to advantage of the free lessons and instrument loan which this project offers. Financial constraints currently limit the band to offering 14 places but attempts to raise more funds continue.
