Today, Mega Choir started to learn This Is Me from The Greatest Showman. The children in 4K and 4C also learned how to perform musical accompaniment for his song on ukulele and pbuzz. Amazingly, they've only had 2 lessons on these instruments.
Here's what you could sound like following a few months of lessons with our woodwind teacher Ross Williams. For more information about saxophone lessons, visit the Woodwind page.
Today, 5BM received a special performance from Thad, on his accordion:
Walking in the Air from The Snowman, composed by our friend, Howard Blake (OBE).

Whoopeeeeee Year Threeeeeeeee!
You were all AMAZING today. Well done and thank you for singing your socks and tights off! The poetry reading was brilliant too. Extra thanks and congratulations to all poetry-readers and soloists. You were so clear and confident and brilliant.
