Musical Explorations

This term Pre-Primary students had a visit from Gabbi for our music session and she brought along a new instrument that the school has been gifted by some visiting teachers from Bali. The students eagerly engaged in the wondering of what it was made from, how it makes the sound and why the beaters were made from rubber and not wood. Their level of questioning and engagement was impressive.

Everyone had the opportunity to play the instrument and in doing do, compose a little tune – it made a beautiful sound. The students chose a variety of tempos and rhythms.  Some creating patterns which they were able to repeat later during their performance.  Some of the combinations of sounds were cheerfuI and some melancholy.  As yet, we don’t actually know what our new instrument is called so we have decided to write to our two lovely visitors to find out.

Gabbi also brought along a flute. This was exciting because we have been listening to Peter and the Wolf and this instrument features a lot! Paul joined us at this stage to see if his mighty wind could create a sound and his attempts prompted some giggles from the audience!
