Longparish Church of England Primary School (Aided)

Our Music Lessons

This term in Music, the children in Kingfisher Class are learning to play brass instruments.

Every Wednesday, we are lucky enough to have our lovely music teacher, Mrs Newman, teaching us how to play the cornet or the baritone. We have been learning how to blow into the mouthpiece correctly to produce a good sound. So far we have learnt the notes C, D, E and F. We are working hard to use the muscles around our mouths to produce the right note. We have to squeeze the muscles particularly hard for the note E! Every week we are improving and are currently preparing a variety of songs to play in our end of term concert. Some of the songs we are learning include ‘Tudor Band’ and ‘Funky Monkey’. We are also starting to learn some Christmas songs too!
