Brass lessons

Year 4 have started to learn how to play a brass instrument.

Since the start of term, they have spent time deciding which brass instrument they would like to choose to play, looking very closely at each one.

They then learnt how to set up and correctly hold the instrument for playing and resting.

Year 4 have started to learn how to blow into the brass instrument to make a sound, using the correct positioning of their mouths and lips.

Year 4 are very excited to learn how to play their brass instruments and they look forward to you seeing their progress throughout the school year.

“Castle on the hill”

This week, Year 3 have been learning to sing “Castle on the hill” by Ed Sheehan, our musician of the month for September. Keep practising Year 3 because it is sounding great already!
