MusicLive at ISSL

Students at the International School São Lourenço (ISSL) now have access to a wide range of music within the school thanks to the newly-appointed music teachers, Karl and Rosalind Tomlin of MusicLive.

The MusicLive project, founded by Rosalind and Karl, is aimed at showing children how there are many different skills and ranges within music.

Both Karl and Rosalind have a strong classical background and studied at the Royal College of Music before playing in major orchestras throughout Europe including the BBC Philharmonic.

A demonstration of the versatility of musical instruments and talents was shown to parents and children during a performance at the school by Rosalind and Karl, who were joined by the Celestion Strings Quartet.

Karl Tomlin said: “I wanted to show the children what could be achieved with just a few instruments and the right training. Classical music is one part of what we teach and we plan to start a Rock Project to run alongside a Music Ensemble as an after school activity so the children can show their talents in different fields of music.”

Head teacher Terry McGuire said: “Music and the arts are an important part in offering a rounded education and we hope that many of the students will take up this opportunity.”
