In year 7 we will be learning about Elements of Music and creating our own Musical ostinatos (just like STOMP). We will celebrate Halloween by composing a spooky piece of music and Christmas by singing and playing (out loud) some all time favourite Christmas carols. We will design and make our own instruments from recycling and compose a piece of music for our emerging junk orchestra. We will explore the range of voices and beats on keyboards, learn how to play some famous keyboard pieces and even organise a KS3 concert to perform these. We will learn about instruments of the orchestra, explore instrumental families, and get familiar with different timbers while wandering through the magical landscape of Peter and Wolf. We will even get to meet some professional musicians that will talk to us about their instruments and give us a chance to try these out. Watch this space!
