B Cador: December 2016
Parents and grandparents were very impressed on Thursday morning when our Year 4/5 performed for them.
Over the past ten weeks the children have received music lessons to help them learn to play trumpets and trombones as part of a Wider Opportunities grant we received. Mr Birch has taught the children not only how to play the instruments but to understand notation and how to count beats and keep in time.
The children conducted themselves beautifully and played their instruments very well during the concert. They spoke with confidence, clarity and expression when introducing the different musical pieces or explaining the learning they had undertaken. Well done Y4/5!
Thank you especially to Mrs Rowlands for offering her time at lunchtimes to give the children extra practice. Mrs Winward and Mr Sargeant have also to be thanked for their support.
We very much hope that this is just the start of the children's journey into the world of playing a brass musical instrument.
