The next two pieces of music we have been learning to play are Darth Vader's March from Star Wars and Tobaggan Man.
Linking into our adventure, A Whole New World, we have begun to learn how to play part of the song from Aladdin on the cornet.

As a one off, we got to have a lesson of Bamboo Tamboo.
Bamboo Tamboo is a form of music from the Caribbean Islands of Trinidad and Tobago.
It combines hitting a Bamboo (plastic) tube on the ground then striking it with a beater.
In our adventure, Rio vs the Rainforest, we have visited Rio de Janeiro just in time for Carnival. In our lesson, we learned about Samba music and even had a go at making some of our own!
Each group of instruments had their own tune to learn and used a different phrase to help them remember the rhythm.
After each group had perfected their part, we joined the rhythms together into a piece of music played by the whole class.
