Meet the Instruments Day
Meet the Instruments Day:
Meet the instruments! Children from Reception to Year 4 listened to performances by our nine, talented, peripatetic music staff, including ‘Three Irish Airs’ by Edward Huws Jones and the ‘Greatest Showman. Mrs Casey explained why music is such a vital skill to have, after which the children were sent off in groups for the fun to began! Brass, woodwind and stringed instruments were available to listen to and to try and play. The highlight for me was watching the children in Reception attempting to play the grandfather of the strings, the double bass.
We hope this instils a lifelong interest and enthusiasm for the subject or a particular instrument. There is so much to choose from and I believe everyone has ‘their instrument’. The taster day mini-plastic instruments can be put in the dishwasher and even played in the bath! I cannot wait to see how many children sign up for instrumental lessons and I look forward to having them in Pre-Prep Philharmonic and the new Junior Orchestra!
