Music to my ears!

Music students

Every year our PGCE Music students work with local schools making fantastic music.

Here are some of the comments from the school children:

‘I thought it was brilliant and fun when you made your own beat and the bin was quite easy to play. Hope you enjoyed our song!’

‘I talked to all my friends about it and they want to do it.’

‘They used all sorts of instruments like chocolate tins, water bottles, even dustbins. If I scored it out of 10 I’d definitely give it 10. Once they had shown you how to make all the different sounds we got into groups and composed our own piece. It sounded good.’

‘In our group we used a box, 2 cardboard tubes, Heroes tins, a gravy pot and a chocolate orange tin lid. After our performance we were all pleased. The performance was great. Thank you for coming.’

‘My favourite instrument was the bin because you could play any sort of sound on it.’

‘When they started I thought they cannot play a stool but they did and the shocked me. It was so cool. We all loved it, thank you.’

‘They taught us how to play recycled instruments. It was really enjoyable. ‘

‘It was good when you came because I had lots of fun and learnt how to play certain beats on the African drums. I thought the song was really addictive because since you came I can’t get the song out of my head.’

‘The talk about the history of the drum was very interesting, and helped you understand how the drum was played. Altogether it was great!’
