New Piano for Stranraer Academy

STRANRAER Academy music department now has a new digital piano. And principal teacher of music Ian Munro describes it as "the most fantastic resource to come into the music department for a long time".

At the flick of a switch, the piano becomes a jazz organ, harpsichord, strings, brass, saxophone and much more. And everything can be recorded into a 3.5 inch disk which is extremely useful for singers at Standard, Higher and Advanced Higher grades.

The instrument, which cost around £1200 was provided by the school’s parent teacher organisation. They rounded off a successful year by presenting it to the music department and before their annual general meeting, Mr Munro provided a demonstration of its qualities.

He explained that the piano, which is used by both staff and pupils, would benefit every pupil in the school from composition work to exams.

Retiring PTA chairman Margaret Sheriffs said

"To witness the piano in action has made all out efforts very worthwhile.

"Thanks to everyone who supported our fundraising activities, we have been able to buy this piano and carry forward a healthy balance to this new term when we hope to fund another substantial item for the pupils’ benefit".
