Music in Year 4

Feb 16, 2023Music

Music in Year 4 has featured an unusual instrument this half term…cups! Taking inspiration from the film, ‘Pitch perfect,’ the Year 4 children have learned how to turn an ordinary takeaway coffee cup into a musical instrument and play a tricky rhythm, which involved taping, hitting, slamming and picking up their cup! A very impressive spectacle to observe has been the children not only learning this rhythm but also learning how to play it in a team – passing the cup during the rhythm to each other – as well as learning the melody on the ukulele.
