Bear Dance
 
Hello everyone.  
As it is the last week of term this is the final set of videos for Ceilidh band. This week it's Bear Dance - a tune Mrs Cochrane plays with the Duchess's High School Ceilidh band. See how slow then how fast you can play it!
Over the holidays I would like you to keep playing all the tunes you have at home and use as many of these videos as you can to help you.
I am so looking forward to seeing you all in September!
Happy playing.
 
From Mrs Humphreys.
 
 
 Davy Knick Knack
Hello everyone,
you have all played Davy Knick Knack before but here is some music (I used musescore on my computer- it's free to download and easy to use if you want to have a go at notating your own music) and some videos for you to play along with.
Happy playing!
Mrs Humphreys
 
 
Blaydon Races
 
A well known north east folk song for you all this time - have a go at playing along with Blaydon Races.
Ryan's Polka
Let's all try remembering Ryan's Polka. There are videos for everyone, whatever your instrument or ability. Why don't you start by listening to this incredible recording https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FiCm5ewRgI4 
If you are very brave you can even try playing along although it is so fast you might not manage it!
The sheet music is here too. Happy playing everyone!
 
Other Music
If you have time, listen to this beautiful improvisation on Pachelbel's Canon. Find a quiet place and close your eyes and just listen for 4 minutes. Year 7, you learned to play this before lockdown. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OdaXu-SbL9s "
 
My new favourite thing this week for me and you, and your families is the daily 30 minute mixtape of classical music. It is a great way to listen to a variety of music. Here is the link https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/brand/b096ykj4 

GMS CEILIDH BAND & YEAR 4 PENNY WHISTLES

Hello all! I do hope you have been playing music. This week’s tune to practise is Eagan's Polka.

GMS CEILIDH BAND & YEAR 4 PENNY WHISTLES

Hello all! I do hope you have been playing music. This week’s tune to practise is RATTLING BOG.

 I have posted 7 videos of all the different parts (piano, penny whistles, ukulele, guitar, violin) in RATTLING BOG, along with copies of the music in case your dog has eaten your folder! It’s going to be sunny this week; perhaps you can play in the garden if you have one. Can you play from memory?

Happy playing. I will post another piece next week.
