Today, we had a treat from the Hampshire Music Service where Mr White and Mrs DeSousa came into play for us as well as tell us all about the instruments they were playing. We learned a lot about stringed instruments and how different sized instruments had an effect on the pitch of the sound produced. We recognised lots of the songs played and it was also interesting to hear how some songs made us feel as they were being played. Some children got to play a steady beat using the instruments whilst the rest of us sang a song.
It was great fun and the session hopefully inspired our children to pick up an instrument and learn how to play it. The message was clear - practice and effort makes you better - you are not born a musician!!
