Year 4 Guitars


Ian Marshall

My name is Ian Marshall, and I am a music teacher with Nottingham Music Service: I’m looking forward to teaching in your school this year!  The main instruments that I play are guitar, bass and drums, but I can also play a bit of trumpet, clarinet, violin and viola!  The instruments Ill be teaching in schools are guitar, drums and bass.

I’ll see some of you at Area Band, where I’m looking forward to seeing you progress and seeing you performing at some of our events and concerts.  The best things about Area Band and the other NMS ensembles I support are seeing children getting pleasure out of playing a musical instrument and pursuing it further.

The NMS event I am most looking forward to this year is Christmas in the City because the children all work so hard to perform in such a magnificent location and it’s always special to see such a wide variety of talent perform in one place!

The advice I would give to anyone learning an instrument with NMS would be, “Enjoy, have fun, learn and make wonderful music because you never know where it may lead!  Learning an instrument could create a pathway to a future or a love of music for life.
