In April 2015 Wareham Town Band visited Upton Junior School with the aim of inspiring our youngsters to learn an instrument. Fast forward 20 months later and it is so lovely to see that their aim was successful. Some of the pupils that attended the evening in 2015, went on to take up learning an instrument and have gone from strength to strength since. Not only forming part of our new school orchestra, but one of our pupils (who now learns and plays regularly as part Wareham Town Band) was awarded with an early Christmas present for her perseverance and determination over the short period of time- Many congratulations, Carly!
Len, who teaches Carly sent us this lovely email to let us know the good news:
Carly has cornet lessons from Wareham Town Band. This morning, Sat 23 Dec she was presented with a brand new cornet from Packers of Taunton, as part of their Christmas Giveaway. She was nominated by Wareham Town Band because she shows considerable promise, and deserves the encouragement that a new quality instrument would bring.
I know the school and the music dept will be as delighted as I and the rest of Wareham Town Band are.
Many congratulations to Carly.
