HE’S Tamworth’s real golden guy and yesterday the multi-award winning country artist Troy Cassar-Daley went back to school to help teach young kids how to write a song.

The long time recycling ambassador for the city and multi-Golden Guitar winner was only 11 years old when he first performed at a Tamworth country music festival.

That’s about as old as some of the students he struck a chord with yesterday at Hillvue Public School when he took a music workshop class to produce a song with 40 lucky students.

But while he was the master tutor it was the students who led the way too, in coming up with the words of a song called Dream Big.

Cassar-Daley said he’d had an amazing morning with the music workshop and the kids could all be proud of their achievements.
