The Music department has been filling the corridors of the school with sound once more! What tremendous news this is!
Year 7 students have started learning all about rhythm and have recently been putting their newfound knowledge into practise by performing on the djembes! We know they can’t wait to add this to the song they have been learning this week too!
Year 8 students have been learning all about Music from the continent of Africa and you may have heard them singing two catchy songs around the house, ‘Si, Si, Si’ and ‘Babethandaza’. Year 8 have also been mastering their djembe skills, drumming whilst performing and this week, creating their own compositions.
Year 9 students have been learning about Samba music. They have enjoyed creating lots of syncopated polyrhythms whilst trying to focus on maintaining a steady pulse. They too are now creating their own sambas and we look forward to hearing them next week.
