We have introduced Class 2S to playing their own keyboards during our music workshops. We asked the pupils to explore the keyboard and to see what type of sounds are possible to achieve. We were able to identify which keys relate to high notes, as well as then working out that the lower notes are located on the opposite end of the keyboard.
Using a simple numbering system, we were able to encourage Class 2 S to play some simple tunes as part of this session. Future work will include an introduction to notation, as well as some work on reading sheet music. As you can see from the video above, this was a highly successful first session with some wonderful music being produced by Class 2S.
