Most of our children were taught by Ms Lee or enjoyed her performance on stage, but 19 students from KS2 were even more lucky to be chosen and work as part of the special Focus Group orchestra to put a piece of music together. They had three sessions lead by Ms Lee and the Performing Arts Team which resulted with a wonderful performance in our KS2 assembly on Tuesday afternoon.
The Focus Group children performed a very special piece of music called “Eine Kleine Gamelan Music”. They were all asked to compose their simple 3 notes melodies which had to use a step and a skip whilst they stayed in the C pentatonic scale. All notes had to ascend or descend and they all had to collaborate together at the end to even include a very complicated rhythm within it.
Some of the students got even a chance to lead a smaller group and help them practice well whilst absolutely everyone worked totally committed to the idea and exercise.
Well done to everyone for more than a successful performance and a huge thank you to Ms Andrea Lee for using her expertise once more to help us understand music better.
