Year 7 have had two fantastic assemblies this half term that introduced them to some of the musical life of the school. On Friday 16th September, Elijah, Isabel, Mr Crane and Mrs Cattanach showcased a number of instruments from the Brass family. Elijah and Isabel both play the trombone and entertained the students with ‘Junk Email Blues’ and ‘You’ve Got a Friend in Me’ to showcase two of the different styles the trombone can play. Mr Crane spoke to all the students about the advantages of learning a musical instrument and the importance it can often play in helping us to relax and meet new friends. On Friday 7th October, Mrs Maddocks and the Woodwind Group took to the stage to perform ‘Eye of the Tiger’ from the film ‘Rocky’. The sounds reverberated round the gym; it was fantastic to hear. Gemma and Bridget also introduced the students to their instruments by playing the flute and saxophone. Bridget played ‘Fly Me to the Moon’ and Gemma played ‘A Whole New World’. Both students played brilliantly.
Following these assemblies, Year 7 students have had the opportunity to try a brass and woodwind instrument and we very much hope that some of these students will take the opportunity to have lessons.
