A brief introduction to the guitar as it has changed over time. This is followed by a sequential musical performance using several guitars, that further describe the evolution of the guitar.

Harry has been an avid member of the BGS Music program ever since his enrollment in 2010. Throughout his life he has had a fascination with music and, more specifically, with the guitar. As a student leader at his school, he has been able to see the impact of music on students of all ages as he participates in a variety of ensembles, and mentors younger groups. Harry has also been able to connect with the community through his music by helping students at the Nursery Road Special School in Brisbane with music therapy and lessons. He believes that music is the most diverse form of expression, and its evolution has been quite incredible. He aspires to be a professional musician one day, as it would allow full dedication to his passion.
