Picking Out a Tune with Dave Trouton

Nursery pupils from Innerwick Primary School learned to pick out a tune with Dave Trouton recently. Dave works with early years groups using magical, musical stories to tale them on learning adventures.

The children have grown in self-confidence and the joy on their faces is self-evident.  We will be sad when Dave’s time with us is finished, he has enriched the curriculum for us and we are very grateful for this opportunity – thank you.’ (Sarah Laing, class teacher Innerwick)

Cove Pupils Enjoy Music with Nick Cook

Last term Nick Cook spent eight weeks working with staff and pupils from The Cove at Dunbar Primary School. They had a great time learning about music and playing with some fascinating instruments.

‘The children and staff in the Rainbow Room are delighted to have more music sessions with Nick and look forward to the session each week. Nick works at the children’s pace, tuning in to their reactions and gently encouraging them to engage with him through the music. He offers a variety of experiences for the children with percussion instruments, tuned instruments and using their voices.’ (Mags  McGregor The Cove)
