Brass Recital

We were extremely lucky to have a visit from some of the specialist music teachers at Northants Music and Performing Arts Trust to perform a brass recital. The teachers spent some time demonstrating each of the brass instruments (trumpet; trombone; French horn; and tuba), explaining how brass instruments are played and discussing how each instrument differs in pitch.

The teachers performed a variety of songs and took some time to ask music-related questions to the children - particularly considering musical elements such as tempo; dynamics; and pitch. It was noted by the teachers that children were able to talk about a range of musical elements, giving examples of how they are featured within music which they were particularly impressed by.
