Folkie friends...I'm starting free guitar lessons for the teachers/TA's in a school where I am a counsellor ( Culverstone Green Primary School in Kent) to help equip them to bring music and song into their classrooms. Currently, the only experience they have is in singing along to cds in assembly.
If any of you have old/cheap and unwanted guitars that you would like to donate; they would be very gratefully received and restrung.
I am surprised and delighted at the uptake of staff wanting to learn to play the guitar and excited at the prospect of our staff inspiring a generation of children to want to learn to play too
As part of this project, I will also be starting free lessons for our disadvantaged kids in the new year, so I'm also on the lookout for unwanted half/three quarter sized guitars as many parents in our school are unable to afford to buy guitars for their children. I am of the opinion that all children should have an equal opportunity to have the experience of learning an instrument, rather than be attainable only for those who can afford to pay xx
