Music Workshops

We were delighted to welcome Julie Wright and Nick Foster to the Prep School for a day of fabulous music making.

Julie and Nick travel the world, giving motivational music sessions to children from nursery and kindergarten level, right through to conservatoire and aspiring professional musicians. In addition they lead ‘Worldwide Woodwind Workshops’.

Music Workshops

Nick and Julie ran an entire day of workshops with us, culminating in not one but two concerts! Their enthusiasm and positivity was brilliantly communicated to our pupils, who were able to achieve amazing advancements in a very short space of time. It was hard to believe that some of the pieces that the pupils were playing in the concert had been practiced for as little as 25 minutes.

Music Workshops

The day started with a flute, clarinet, oboe and saxophone workshop, followed by a workshop with PB, where the class learnt what a piccolo was, identified music in major and minor keys and could differentiate music that was staccato and legato! We also looked at the sounds of contemporary and baroque music and even found a moment to perform the Baby Shark Dance!

Music Workshops

After a break for lunch, we had a workshop that included the whole orchestra which was followed by two concerts, one with our woodwind players performing with Julie and Nick and the second involving the entire orchestra.
