Brass lessons continue weekly with the children in Key Stage 2. They are working hard to perfect their tone and pitch. The children have looked closely at the different notes, noting the differences between crochets, minims and semibreves and checking how many beats are in the bar. They have also learned about the importance of handling their instruments with care and ensuring they are packed away correctly and carefully.
We had an enjoyable music afternoon today with the children of Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 having the opportunity to perform to the other pupils in school. Firstly the children in Mrs Matthews' class played two pieces of brass music. They started their performance with a lovely rendition of Ode to Joy.
One note samba- watch out for the improvised solos from every child. Great work!
Here are some of our other favourite medleys.
A combination of song and brass. Enjoy!
