Great article Ollie and yes you're correct: it is about investing in children. The reactions on the Edinburgh Evening News website are disappointing and rather worrying. Do forums such as these always attract the destructively negative and smugly arrogant of people? Yes, I'm all for people having opinions but some of that bile is hugely uninformed, unhelpful and ugly. You'd think that people such as yourself, professional and experienced would have some understanding of how to continually provide a curriculum and set of experiences that relates to, motivates and challenges pupils in schools but no, apparently the question seems to be- why not just teach them guitar?! Sheesh, what can you do? Keep doing your stuff Ollie, we know it works.

Great stuff Ollie. I agree with Derek. I am afraid I have no faith in fora that allow anonymous contributors. For some reason, they always end up with the lowest common denominator of debate. They are the very people who would be up in the arms (anonymously of course!) if the News ran the article without naming the school or the teacher! Keep on keeping on!

Nice quote Ollie. I will remember that one...
Keep up the good work !
