PRIMARY school children are enjoying strumming away on their new ukeleles in preparation for an end of term concert.

More than 60 year three and four children at Holbrook Primary School in Gosport have been playing the instruments during their music lessons.

Sasha Reynolds-Mustoe, nine, said: ‘I really enjoy playing the ukelele because it makes a nice sound and learning new tunes is so much fun.

‘In the lessons we sometimes copy the music teacher but we are also learning to read musical notes.

‘I’m looking forward to playing the concert at the end of term so we can show our teachers and parents what we have learnt.

‘The ukelele always puts a smile on my face – and I hope we can do the same for people who listen to us play.’

Children at Holbrook benefit from music lessons in a range of instruments through Hampshire Music Service’s Listen 2 Me programme.
