Ed Sheeran has been a well-known name rarely used as of late. While we still absolutely adore him, he has taken a backseat from the limelight not long after completing his tour here in New Zealand.

But, like many of us, Ed Sheeran has been in lockdown at his home too. And while many of us turned to arts and crafts, Netflix, baking or a bit of DIY, Ed decided he would use his time in lockdown to help pass his craft onto the next generation.

According to The Sun, Ed took part in a Q&A with a primary school class at a South London school and taught them how to play guitar, while also reflecting on his own time at school.

The singer told pupils he thought he was an “idiot” because he “wasn’t very smart” during his time in the classroom.

Ed said: “I basically wasn’t very smart at school, I thought I was an idiot for a very long time. I couldn’t do maths, science and English and I was told to be successful in life, you had to do those things.

“I loved playing music, that’s what made me happiest. My dad always said to me, if you want to be a musician, work really hard at it.”

He also opened up about his self-imposed hiatus from music and admitted he won’t be releasing any music until next year while he embraces family life.
