Music is the literature of the heart; it commences where speech ends.

― Alphonse de Lamartine

At the recent Junior School assembly, we were entertained by Maxwell Munday (6Fo), who played Italian Folk Song by L. Zeplement on the French horn accompanied my Mr Kinda on piano. He is a Junior School Music Leader. This Every week the leaders host a performer who they interview and introduce to fellow students. This week, Maxwell was hosted by Geoffrey Olsen (6Yo). Maxwell has been learning with Mr Mályusz for six months. Maxwell plays in the Allegro Concert Band and sings in the Junior School Choir. He also plays piano. His sports of choice are swimming, but he also especially liked playing music for the 6 years he has been learning.  He says, “I love that it is a hard instrument”.
