Today it has been wonderful to see the buzz amongst the children as they wait patiently for their music lesson with our new music company ‘Fidler Music.’ In just one day at school I have witnessed Ocarinas, Singing, Brass, Violins and Ukulele and Guitar playing. It is wonderful the way our music department is expanding and reaching out to so many children. I look forward with anticipation to our end of school year ‘Musical afternoon’ where we will once again display the talents of all our instrumentalists and singers.
Our Choral Group gave their first performance in assembly last week. They sang ‘You’ve got a friend.’ Even without a warm up or short rehearsal they sounded amazing and didn’t seem phased at all by their audience. I look forward to preparing the children next term for all the Christmas concerts. The music is already in place! Today we posted an audio tweet of our whole school singing a peace song. If you click the link in the tweet you can experience what our weekly big sing is like.
Y5 have made super progress in just 6 lessons and are able to play ‘Hot Cross Buns’ and ‘Castle March’ using the notes C, D and E. Mr Dixon is incredibly pleased with the progress the children have made and thoroughly enjoys coming to work with them each week. Apologies for the delay with children waiting on instrument repairs. These were quite major repairs that have now been carried out and we have been reassured these instruments are now good as new, and will be allocated to children.
