On Wednesday 4th September the staff and pupils of Room 16 attended a music composing workshop run by Drake Music and the Scottish Chamber Orchestra.
We arrived in the hall and took our seats as 2 cellists played a smooth and relaxing melody. A third musician played various instruments and handed them out to pupils to join in. My favourite moment was when he started playing a trombone and one very shy pupil simply grinned and said “Wow!”
The pupils (and staff) had the opportunity to play various percussion and wind instruments. Pupils were given a sense of control as the cellos and trombone would repeat the sounds they had made. You will see lots of big grins in the photos.
