Music Notes

There has been a huge improvement in the Jazz Band this week; congratulations to those players who have really risen to this new challenge of performing in a brand new ensemble here at NAIS Pudong! With a very rhythmically demanding repertoire and a totally different style of playing, these students are truly being ambitious!

In Year 5 students have been putting the final touches to their graphic scores and performing them during the class. Pupils were encouraged to use hand percussion and their voices, but also to try to think of different ways in which these instruments can produce sound. Both Mrs. Bailey and I have been very impressed by the creativity of all students when tackling this task. The end products were really enjoyable–each one being unique despite following the same pattern of pictures as a stimulus.  Each performance was videoed and we will share them on our twitter account @naispudongmusic. Please follow us for videos and more information regarding performances. 

We have three upcoming performances; the Lighting of the Christmas Tree at both the Kerry Parkside hotel on the 24th November and also here at NAIS Pudong on Friday 8th December. Additionally, the Christmas Carol Stage and Screen concert is on Thursday November 30th. Please look out for the posters and also the letters and jot forms for these events soon.
