Recreating todays lesson at home. Music and learning

#becomingeducational W22: The Musical session

This week we invited our old friend and mucker Dave Griffiths to run a session on Music and learning.

This week Dave took us through attributes of music – tone, pitch, timbre – volume – rhythm…

And then improvised – the results were astonishing – three amazing compositions that captured a sky dive – a shoal of fish – and rowing… row row rowing… gently up the stream! Brilliant!

Thanks Dave! Thanks to everyone who joined in with such passion…
And thank YOU for writing this week’s class blog!!

Happy Easter everybody!!
