Recorder masterclass

February 4, 2016

 

Yesterday the Year 3 and 4 children were very lucky to be given the opportunity to watch a recital from international recorder superstar Piers Adams. He had the  children in the palm of his hand as he talked through his musical background and showed them a selection of his recorders, some which dated back many years. The children were amazed at Piers’ brilliant solo performance, which at one point included him playing three recorders at once. The West Leigh Junior recorder players from years 3 through to 6 were then invited, along with children from Bournes  Green Junior School, King Edmund School, Westcliff High School for Girls and Southend High School for Boys, to take part in an interactive workshop with Piers to showcase their talents and to take  advice and expertise from the international mastreo himself. They had been working hard to learn a special ragtime piece in six parts.  This was an amazing experience for our children and the atmosphere during the session was buzzing. We hope the workshop will inspire them  to reach even greater musical achievements in the future.
