Year 6 Music Transition Day
On Friday 17th June, thirty Year 6 instrumentalists visited the Music Department for a day of music.
The pupils made music based on the theme of 'space'. All of the pupils brought their instruments in to learn to play three specially-arranged pieces – the well-known theme tunes to Star Wars and Doctor Who, and Mars from The Planets. The pupils also learnt to sing Space Oddity by David Bowie.
The pupils were helped in their learning by the music staff, including some of the peripatetic teachers, and some Trinity musicians from Years 7, 9 and 12 who acted as helpers for the day. The head of Year 7, Mr Holt, also joined in on his guitar. The Year 6 pupils were given a tour of all the music facilities in the school and were told about all of the different musical opportunities that will be available to them in September.
The day ended with a performance to parents in the Drama Studio. The pupils opened the mini concert with their singing and then performed the three space-themed pieces as an orchestra. The standard of the performance was excellent, especially considering the tricky nature of some of the music and the relatively short rehearsal time. All of the pieces were well received by an enthusiastic audience of parents.
We look forward to welcoming these talented musicians to Trinity in September and hope that they are looking forward to the musical adventures that await them!
Thank you to everyone who helped on the day.
