Music Department in Review – 19 October – 23 October

27 October 2015

Year 3 have been continuing with The Julliard-Nord Anglia Performing Arts Programme core work focusing on Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring. 

  • Ukulele Performance

They have learned about the story in more detail and internalised two of the key melodic themes from the “Ritual of the rival tribes” by singing and playing them on keyboard.

Year 1 have been further developing their keyboard skills using the Keyboard toolbox and can recognise and read the first five notes from a C major scale.

Our Year 4 students have had an exciting week learning to read the notation for the open strings and to sound notes with pizzicato technique. Ukulele is the focus for our Year 5’s this part of the term and they have been working diligently to learn chords and strumming patterns.

In Year 6 we are listening to Gustav Holst’s The Planets and have been playing several of the themes on the keyboard with an emphasis on dynamics and texture.
