This group have worked hard to create different vocal effects with a range of instruments as accompaniment.
This group have also been busy cycling but have come up with an effective piece in a short time.
These pairs didn't have much time to compose their pieces as they have been busy with their cycling....I'm sure you'll agree they have done a great job in a short time.
Moonlight inspired pieces and poems by 5Ry and 5/6O
Classes 5Ry and 5/6O have been working on pieces inspired by Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata. They have composed triplet patterns and layered them with another pattern before combining them with a poem written in the Victorian era ; some stunning results I am sure you'll agree! Some groups even improvised melodies for the poems to match the xylophone patterns ; others created atmospheric endings. Well done everyone!
