On Tuesday, 6th February, pupils involved in Outreach hosted 19 pupils from Sungai Melayu for a music workshop, in what has now become a yearly event. This year, we were given the opportunity to devise and create music using various tuned and untuned percussion instruments, working on call-and-response rhythms and simple chord progressions.
The morning’s visit started off with a body percussion workshop led by the Music Department, focusing on groove and pulse. Following that, pupils from both schools collaborated on a performance piece, rehearsing it in preparation for a short lunchtime showcase which then took place in the Prep School dining hall. After that, our visitors joined our pupils for a hearty lunch, before we bade them goodbye – we look forward to welcoming them back again soon.
