Music Week Spring 1 2020
We examined the work of a chosen composer; Year 5 looked at Bernstein and Year 6 looked at Bizet. We used our knowledge of the Musical Elements to appraise their works and explore how Timbre, Dynamics and Tempo affected the music. After enjoying these musical delights, we then explored different modern songs, looking at their structures and finding the most common beats, durations and Ostinato patterns. During our afternoons, we practiced using both tuned and untuned instruments - showing how these can be placed together to create a composition as a band, creating texture with our Timbre. We even had a chance to practice singing in rounds... but that's not ready for human ears just yet.
