Music

What’s not to like about Music? Music not only develops skills as a musician but also as a person. How many subjects offer you the opportunity to learn different pieces/skills whilst working with peers in a disciplined manner? Everyone can be a musician in the music room, it may not mean you become famous but you’ll have had fun whilst learning, working hard whilst having fun. There is no such thing as “I can’t” because you know something? With enough effort & hard work you will soon see that you certainly can!
