Prep School Pupils Make Marvellous Music

Prep 7-13
Posted on: November 10th 2020

Prep School pupils have been making lots of wonderful music recently.

On Tuesday 3rd November, pupils and staff were impressed as they watched a video of the Upper Third Music Assembly. The Upper Third composed and played a variety of different rhythms using Djembe drums, which originate from West Africa. The creativity of the different rhythms was astounding and the Upper Third pupils demonstrated the high level of communication and teamwork that is required when performing a musical piece as part of a group. Different groups showed call and response textures, as well as polyphonic drumming, where lots of different rhythms happen at the same time.
