PUPILS were for once told to pipe up in class.

Children at Springside Primary School, in Springside Road, Walmersley, had the chance to try a range of instruments when itinerant musical duo Travelling by Tuba paid a visit.

The visiting musicians also taught pupils some dance steps, running workshops in samba, tango and salsa for different age groups.

The youngsters then put everything together in a concert for their parents in the evening.

Music teacher Marian Cole said: “Travelling by Tuba have been coming for a few years now and the pupils get very excited looking forward to each visit.

“They know how much fun they’re going to have.”
