Upcoming community song
Make sure you are watching the correct video. Are you an alto or soprano for this song?
Music: Count Us In exists to advocate for and celebrate music in Australian schools. Our national Celebration Day will be held on Thursday 2 November. The Senior Choir will be joining other Cockburn School’s for our second Cockburn Choral Festival to celebrate the occasion. All Year 4-6 students have started to learn this year’s song Shine Together.
This week Year 4 students are sitting an aptitude test, which is one of the tools used to select students for the Instrumental Music School Services classes. Aubin Grove offers lessons on clarinet, flute, brass and classical guitar in Year 5 and 6. Please ensure laptops are charged as they will require this for their test. I will also hold a catch-up test in 2 weeks time during lunch for any interested students who are away during their Music lesson.
Last week the boys of Grover performed for the first time as a band. Congratulations boys, you should be proud of your efforts!
Some of the songs we are learning for NAIDOC Week
This term the Year 4 students were learning to play the ukulele. They learnt how to hold the instrument correctly, how to strum different rhythms and how to play 3 chords (C, F & G7).
The Year 5 and 6 students also continued to learn the ukulele, building on their skills from last year. They learnt some new chords including Am, G and Em. Many of us can now play Riptide!
