Instruments of the Orchestra

This term year 7 students are learning about instruments of the orchestra in their Music lessons. They are now familiar with the sights and sounds of the different orchestral families: strings; woodwind; brass; percussion, as well as individual instruments within the families. Students have also had a chance to try out some orchestral instruments such as the violin, trumpet and cornet. Each class is also working on a performance as a keyboard ‘orchestra’ in which they learn to play their part within a group.
