KEY STAGE 1

The Wizard

Punchkin

This project offers a creative composition workshop based on the story of the Wizard Punchkin - an Indian fable that is mirrored in the tales of other nations. The class will be introduced to a range of Indian instruments, followed by a setting of certain aspects of the story to music. After a rendition of the tale, with the children adding a simple musical accompaniment, the class will be encouraged to combine these musical elements into a composition in its own right. There will be a focus on rhythm and melodic contour during the composition process. Finally the class may like to record their work.
