Who knows what this is?

I was delighted that Beatrice brought her Chromaharp into school today to show the class. It’s a very unusual instrument! Beatrice explained that a member of her family is going to teach her how to play it.

Thank you Beatrice for bringing it in and letting us hear it.

Carnival of the Animals

There are lots of picture book based on this piece of music. Some of you may even have a copy at home? Why don’t you have a good luck in the classroom or in a public library to see if you can find a copy. I bet some of you even have the CD at home.

If anyone is lucky enough to have an iPad you can buy a very good app which shows the musicians and includes cartoons

“Tourist” performed by Bhaagya and Sophia

Bhaagya loves listening to this song so she thought she would have a go at learning it. “It was hard for me to transition between the chords during the interlude”. However she practised until she could do it. I then persuaded Sophia to have a go at singing it with her.

This is their recording. I think it is wonderful.
