Hawthorn Class love learning their ocarina instrument. This is a 4 holed wind instrument originally from south America.
We have learned new songs each session, played as soloists, duets, quartets and as a whole orchestra.
We have learnt a new game with 'Twinkle Twinkle' during which a child counts us in when another child is tapped on the shoulder, they must stop playing. It's nerve-wracking for the last person playing!
We have played as a 4 group round for 'London's Burning'.
We follow oc-pix notation which has moved on from ocarina shape to squares. Today we learnt how to keep a beat of 4 with a semi-breve.
Our songs so far:
Twinkle Little Star
Au Clair de la Lune
