live music

Each week, 18 experienced performers give 10 live music concerts / workshops in the Primary and Special schools. The concerts are informative, given to a high standard, and are presented in an exciting and lively manner. The programmes are designed to address key aspects of the National Curriculum guidelines for music, and are tailored to meet the differing requirements of Key stages one and two.

BRASS QUINTET

The Brass Quintet features trumpets, horn, trombone and tuba, playing music from a wide range of periods and genre. The "rolled out horn" (hose pipe with mouthpiece and funnel) is a great favourite!
