Saxophone in the Music Room

Posted by Rocio Banyuls on Thursday, May 9, 2019,
This week the children at Gracemount Primary have been learning about the saxophone. They learned what is made of, all the parts of the sax, and that the most important part to actually need to make a sound is a tiny piece made of cane called 'reed'! They were really amazed at that, but the most surprising thing was that, when asked how many keys (buttons) the saxophone had, they had a wild guess at 7 or 12, but they weren't expecting the sax to have 23 keys to press with only 10 fingers in o...

Learning the Musical Alphabet

Posted by Rocio Banyuls on Sunday, March 24, 2019,

This week at harp club, children have been playing games to learn more about the musical alphabet. They built a giant Alphabet snake and then played games reciting the alphabet forward and backwards! (really tricky when you've never done it!) - Then they are relating the alphabet with colours and writing notes on the stave in the correct places! In that way they can very early write and read their own music.

Such fun while learning!

Last Saturday we had the pleasure of having some of our young pupils performing at the Grange Fair.
We had a lovely sunny day (can't say that often...), and the children performed some beautiful music for the crowd gathered there.
We had three recorder groups, one of them with children as young as 5, performing their very first public performance with great confidence!

We also heard a lovely recorder duet, and we also had a very confident solo recorder by a young girl who is preparing to do her ...
