Year 4 feedback from instrument project

Dear year 4,

This has been the first year we have run the instrument project. Could you please give some advice to next years year 4 groups? It would be really helpful if you could pass on some of the the important things you have learned this year.

Tom, James and Joe have asked me to pass on their thank yous for the wonderful cards and messages you gave them. They really appreciate them!

So please can you think back to the music project, pass on some advice and tell me what you thought of the instrument lessons.

Remember to just use your first name!

Many thanks,
Mrs Schneider

  23. I really enjoyed playing the instruments. My favourite was trumpet because i could play really loud. The teachers were amazing and really talented and very helpful. It inspired me to enjoy music and listen to music more often. I found guitar really hard and challenging because we had to learn more then one song to play in five weeks and to learn all the string names like A and B. I love music. Thank you for inspiring me.


  24. It was amazing my eyes were full of tears i couldn’t believe it.My favorite instrument was the violin.My favorite song was be free.It had lots of power in it and all of them were fantastic.


  25. I enjoyed all the moments we had of playing the instruments. They all were difficult as the for the guitar you have to keep moving your hand up and down the strings, the djembe was hard as you needed to remember all the shapes you are make with your hand to play the instrument and trumpet as you needed to figure out how hard to blow. Even though the were a bit hard, I enjoyed it.


  26. It was an amazing experience, the teachers were awesome and I enjoyed every second of it. My favorite instrument was the guitar because, I learned one of my favorite songs especially the baseline. I will be continuing to learn the guitar in year5.


  27. I loved our music lessons because we got to experience how the musical instruments worked. Drums was the hardest but we got to listen to different musics on the Djembe and tom was a really good teacher. The trumpets was my favorite but sometimes it was really hard because the trumpet got stuck sometimes but James was really fun. THE GUITAR WAS ALSO REAIIY FUN.


  28. When we where doing Djembe the teacher would tell us what we did over the week and learned about sound and different songs


  29. I loved all the songs and the instruments that they used in the back track. my favorite song was overcome.


  30. I loved the drums,guitar and trumpet i really liked the drums because at the end of the song we got to shout ROSS!!!.

  33. I enjoyed all the musical instruments as it was a challenge.The teachers were very good and teached me.I liked when we got to perform to our parents.I didn’t like the part when we got to do more in the other instruments.


  34. I loved it,all of the songs were brilliant but, my favorite was we`re going to high school because of the back track and their singing voices.They were amazing !!!!!!


  35. It was really cool learning the instruments and I got to show off what I learnt at home. The hardest instrument was the trumpet because you had to use your breath. The djembe was the most fun one I liked. The guitar was the one which had the most songs in it.

  40. It was an EPIC! adventure learning how to play the guitar,drum and trumpet I loved playing all of them but I loved the drum the best ! I especially liked all the tutors because they were all so amazing and kind.


  41. I enjoyed having these music lessons with professional music teachers because even though it was tough at times it was still really fun to learn something new. The teachers where really nice and were very helpful when we got stuck on anything. My favourite instrument to play was the trumpet even though it was still kind of hard to get a sound out of it. The instruments we got to play were the djembe, trumpet and the guitar. The guitar was really hard to play because it was very fiddly because you had to use certain strings and also the frecks were very hard to use sometimes. All in all it was very fun. Thank you tutors


  42. I loved it when we got to play all the instruments. My favourite instrument is the guitar because its cooler and even bigger than the other two instruments. Thank u Tom,James,and Joe for giving us the opportunity to play three different instruments. A djembe ,a guitar and a trumpet.YOU GUYS ARE THE BEST!!!!!!
