playing the pipes

Year 6 enjoyed a unique musical workshop this Tuesday, with instruction in playing Polyphones. The instruments are, to all intents and purposes, varying lengths of coloured drainpipe which you hit with a rubber bat that looks like a table tennis paddle!


ike a table tennis paddle! Very much akin to 'Junk Percussion', this all inclusive workshop engaged the children in music whether they learn an instrument or not. Various musical topics were discussed and explored during the session - including melody, harmony, ensemble playing, rhythm, dynamics and more. The pupils enjoyed the chance to get involved and make some very unique music!
