Cornets and Trombones
On Thursday, Year 4 performed an ambitious programme of music to their parents. After studying the cornet and trombone for just nine weeks, they were able to demonstrate that they had learnt a range of notes. The concert started with ‘Hot Cross Buns’, followed by ‘Heavy Metal’ and ‘Feeling Down, Feeling Blue’.
The children have worked really hard this term, from the first lesson when several of them could not even blow a note, to being able to play these three pieces confidently. We are really proud of their achievements and hope it has inspired them to continue learning a brass instrument next term.
We also treated to a performance from Sixth Form pupils on the Tuba and French Horn which gave the children an example of other brass instruments that they could go on to learn.
Many thanks to Mr Warren for teaching the children all term and for making the lessons so much fun.
