Understand how music from a different culture makes use of musical elements
KEY STAGE 1
This workshop is aimed at younger Key Stage 1 children, and is loosely based on the tale of “The Musicians of Bremen”. After a brief introduction to the orchestral instruments used, the children will recreate the story with the emphasis very much on movement and rhythm. There will be plenty of opportunity for making music using the school percussion instruments.
