Christchurch Symphony Orchestra first violinist Cathy Irons lead a group of Hawea Flat School year 3 and 4 pupils through a song yesterday.

Ms Irons and three other musicians from the orchestra will spend three days at the school this week working with the pupils on their musical skills.

The focus for the week was to get the pupils participating in and making music together while having fun, Ms Irons said.

''It's all about having fun with music.''

On Friday all the pupils will perform a concert for their teachers and parents using the skills they have learned during the week.

The musicians are also travelling to other schools in the Queenstown Lakes areas this week performing and letting the pupils try out some of their instruments.
