The event, which is now in its 34th year, was organised by Mr and Mrs Hutchings, who are music teachers at a local school.

Speaking to the newspaper, Mrs Hutchings said: "We hope the summer school has fired their enthusiasm in music and they will come back next year. The children really enjoy it.

"One parent said her daughter almost sang herself to sleep with the songs they had been learning. "

They were introduced to instruments like acoustic guitar, violin, cello and the piano.
