Music Monthly Update #9

Students are exploring timbre in music and examine the ways composers use musical elements to create different effects and tell stories through music.

They are currently exploring the story “Jack and the Beanstalk”.

Students will be increasing their repertoire of songs and using tuned and un-tuned percussion instruments to accompany performances.

We will also be examine the way we can notate musical ideas such as pitch and rhythm.

Students are continuing to explore musical accompaniments.

Using classroom instruments they are composing short pieces exploring the timbres of the different instruments  as well as their voices.

Students are now working on musical arrangements of the song “One Day”, using a combination of tuned and un-tuned percussion instruments.

Students are composing their own pieces exploring syncopated melodies with harmonic accompaniment.

Having finished their PYP Exhibition, students are rehearsing music and songs from Cinderella & Rockerfella, a panto-style musical based on the traditional fairy tale. Lots of opportunities for students to act, sing and dance!

Cinderella & Rockerfella to be performed on Wednesday 26th June at 7pm in the school hall.
