Trinity News : April 2011
TRINITY NEWS 37 In 2011 the Year 2 String Programme has been introduced to the Lewisham Campus. This has proved to be an exciting and stimulating addition to the boys’ weekly music class and activities. The enthusiasm from the boys has been fantastic and the look on their faces as they walked in and saw all the beautiful violins and cellos laid out for them, was magical. Playing a string instrument has many benefits on auditory, sensory and motor activities, all of which are excellent for brain development. It has also shown to have an effect on other general cognitive functions, related to memory and attention. The playing of a string instrument at Lewisham is not a new concept as the K-2 Mozart Strings co-curricular group was formed in 2007 for boys who take private violin or cello lessons. However, with this compulsory Year 2 programme, this ensures every boy will graduate from Lewisham having experienced the joy of playing an instrument and will make the transition into the Year 3 string programme a very smooth one. These foundations will hopefully motivate our youngest boys to extend their knowledge further by enrolling in our flourishing private instrumental programme.
