BBC Philharmonic at Bowker Vale!

Year 1 had a real treat when members of the BBC Philharmonic came to visit. They showed us a violin, a cello and a flute and we listened to the different sounds these instruments can make. Watch the videos and see if you can describe the sounds they make? Are they high or low pitched? Are they fast or slow? Do they sound loud or quiet?

They told us a musical version of The Gingerbread Man and we all sang the chorus together.

We learned about the job of a conductor and some children had a go at conducting the orchestra! Listen to how they play fast and slow as they watch the conductor!
