Issue 121: Welcome to The Jungle

Here we go again…

I promised I would let you know if the Elephants, Hippos and Kangaroos had done the trick for the piano pupil with the Attwood sonatina – and the answer is – it was a resounding success! She played through the phrase without a glitch. We were both very pleased with ourselves, perhaps for different reasons!

This week, I’ve accounts of two class lessons to share; one of a conducting game to explore timbre with year 3 and 4, and the other describing the way I have approached teaching a year 1 and 2 class that needed a change of tactics.

I have also given you a link to an inspiring Ted Talk which I very much hope you will enjoy, and get as much inspiration from, as I did.

Until next time,

branch
