Billy’s band

Dan Newell, creator of Billy’s Band music project, who is also a

trumpeter in the London Symphonic Orchestra, visited Perivale Primary School, in Lotus River, on Thursday March 3.

Mr Newell told the pupils at assembly about the joy of being able to play a musical instrument, in his case the trumpet. Then he did a demonstration to the Grade 2 teachers and pupils on how to use his book and CD to learn music.

Mr Newell also donated 35 copies

of his book and CDs to Perivale Primary.

Other primary schools which benefited from this project are Sullivan and Floreat primary schools, as well as Good Hope Seminary.
