Today’s percussion challenge for year 4

Well done year 4 – another great lesson with Ms Lilli!

I am so pleased that you were able to hold the beaters correctly. Just look at these fabulous pictures.

demonstrating how to hold beaters correctly

Some questions for you to answer

1. What is the difference between a glockenspiel and a xylophone?

2. Can you remember the new melody we learnt?

Below are the notes


Now listen to Ms Lilli play it and sing along with her at home.

Anyone who practises hard and can learn the tune off by heart gets to have the first turn next week.

Good luck!
