11. Beat It.

11. Beat It” Project 

The North Lanarkshire “Beat It” project offered P7 pupils in St Mary’s Primary, Coatbridge, Sacred Heart PS, Bellshill, Coatbridge HS, St Andrew’s HS and Airdrie Academy an opportunity to participate in the rhythmic and melodic aspects of a learning a percussion instrument with the aim of offering an opportunity to participate in ensemble performances and local authority music groups.

It was important to feel that pupils viewed their involvement as being fun and enjoyable, whilst rewarding at the same time, and that they had the opportunity to experience the joy of performing to their peers, parents and staff.
