As part of our International Concert Series Extras each year we run composition workshops and concerts for both secondary and primary school children. Our primary school composition project should have seen composer Helen Woods working in 8 primary schools across the Vale of Glamorgan and Cardiff during March 2020, leading up to a concert at St David’s Hall with the Hermes Experiment. This project was working together with the Vale of Glamorgan Music Festival and supported by St David’s Hall, Arts Council Wales, Ty Cerdd and the Vale of Glamorgan Council.
Unfortunately due to the COVID19 outbreak this project had to be cancelled. We didn’t want pupils to miss out on this exciting opportunity to create their own music, so we have put together a pack for keystage 2 pupils to do with their teachers/parents/guardians at home, or in the classroom, where ever and whenever it is safe to do so. We hope you enjoy and we would love to hear your musical compositions.
This pack is aimed at keystage 2 pupils and looks at using stories to create musical compositions.
