In the meantime, here’s a brief update on what our year groups learnt last week in class.
Year 1 have been continuing their focus on the keyboard using some of the excellent resources recently added to the Julliard toolbox.
Year 2 experienced dotted rhythms within a Juilliard core work Violin concerto by Mendelssohn.
Year 3 discovered the meaning of ostinato through their continued exploration of the Stravinsky core work.
Year 4 finally got to experience bowing on their cellos which has been eagerly awaited over the past few weeks of purely pizzicato playing.
Our Year 5 students are learning to combine their chord ukulele playing with a sung melody of a popular tune.
And finally, our Year 6 students have been laying the foundation for a Gustav Holst inspired composition by researching and then designing their own planets.
Have a great week everyone.
