This year, instrumental music teachers Gene Gill and Eddie Holmes have collaborated on a program that gives grade 4 and 5 students their first tastes of brass and woodwind instruments. The class complements the introduction to strings program that Andy Happel and Eddie started last year (a gift from the Margaret Burnham ’21 Charitable Trust allowed the school to purchase quarter- and half-size violins and violas and a half-size cello).
Waynflete is well on its way to building a strong farm team of instrumentalists for the Middle and Upper Schools ensembles!
