Keerthana was very excited when she learned that year 5 as going to be taking part in a special violin project because she has just started to learn the violin. She goes to a Tamil school on saturdays and this September began learning to play the violin. This is the book she is using.
Keerthana is learning to play in a Tamil style which uses a different scale to the ones we often use in school. Before she begins her practise she always starts off with a musical prayer. Have a listen
Once she has played this she then moves on to her practise.
It is very difficult to play the violin but I think that Keerthana has got off to a great start!
Mrs MacGregor, our violin tutor, was in school today measuring up 5C class for their violins. Next week is 5A’s turn.
Don’t forget to make a start on your homework! I know a couple of you have already finished it. here is Keerthanas
