On Monday, our children enjoyed a real treat in their celebration of music assembly. What better way to finish a block of sessions than with a live music performance from one of Hayle Academy's brilliantly talented student bands, 'The Strugglers'! The focus of the assemblies has been the role music can play in our lives, and how becoming good at playing music requires a lot of the right type of practice.
Danny, Jonas, Megan, Mitch and Ollie each explained who their musical influences are, how long they've been playing their respective instruments and played a quick demonstration solo. As lead singer and front man, Danny also fielded questions from the children expertly, sharing answering duties with his fellow band mates. To top it all, they played 3 well known covers of songs by Nirvana, The Foo Fighters and The White Stripes. The Strugglers were fantastic ambassadors for Hayle Academy, and in particular the music department, demonstrating high quality musicianship behind a kind, supportive smile. It was an assembly that the Bodriggy children will remember fondly for a very long time; several of whom have already asked about the possibility of starting music lessons themselves.
Thanks to everyone at Hayle Academy who made it possible and well done to 'The Strugglers' for inspiring the next generation of musicians!
