BRASS BRILLIANCE!

15 Oct 2015

On Monday, many pupils enjoyed experiencing some brass music as part of enrichment week. The Pre Prep loved hearing Mr Chandley playing his trumpet as they came into assembly, and Year 4 and Year 5 each enjoyed a superb session with him, learning all about the trumpet and the trombone. They listened to pieces, learnt about the history and science of the trumpet, and heard all different kinds of mutes make a difference to the sound. Barney from Pre Prep performed a jazzy piece for us, too! Some lucky children even got to have a go on a trumpet or a trombone. Thank you very much to Mr Chandley for such an entertaining and informative afternoon!
