Pupils at Radwinter Primary School will receive free brass lessons for eight weeks.
The school's annual Band on the Run programme has begun, giving Year 4 pupils the chance to try out a musical instrument free of charge.
The children were given their instruments on Friday, January 21 and tried playing a few notes.
They also learnt how to handle the instruments, put them together, and how to hold a note for four beats.
The teacher said: "They thoroughly enjoyed their session on Friday.
"We will work with music teacher Mr Wilson over the next eight weeks to create some music!"
Band on the Run was designed to give children practical experience with musical instruments in class.
