Hello astronauts! Charlotte and Bryony here, wonderful to meet you.
Join us on a new musical adventure, a Race through Space. Your mission is to help to design our rocket so we can BLAST OFF!
Violinists Charlotte Skinner and Bryony Morrison present a series of short videos taking young astronauts aged 4-7 on a musical adventure through space. Over six weeks they’ll explore orchestral repertoire and different elements of music in order to design a musical spaceship built from the interrelated dimensions of music featured in the KS1 curriculum. Accompanied by well-known pieces of music, each week they will look at one of six musical building blocks and encourage children to create that part of the spaceship in preparation for blast-off!
Episode 1: Rhythm
Episode 2: Dynamics
Episode 3: Tempo
Episode 4: Timbre
Episode 5: Pitch
Episode 6: Texture
Print out your worksheets and help us on our mission to blast off!
