For Years 4, 5 and 6
This exciting workshop covers “Changing Sounds” topic of the National Curriculum.
Will’s insight as a musical instrument designer makes this a thoroughly engaging workshop.
Every pupil takes part in a demonstration using all sorts of unusual instruments including: broomsticks, a conch shell, penny whistles, straws, guitar strings, a slinky, a trumpet, a trombone, plastic tubing, a marimba, plastic bottles, a metallophone, a batonka, a tuning fork, a djembe, water and a helium balloon.
In the process pupils will learn:
- How to differentiate between Pitch and Volume.
- How sound travels through Solids, Liquids and Gases, but not through a Vacuum.
- How to vary pitch on Strings, Wind, Brass and Percussion.
The workshop is designed for 30 pupils and lasts approximately 90 minutes Cost £95

Feedback from schools:-
“Brilliant workshop, so interactive and different from last year.” National Science Teacher of the Year 2012, Tracy Kilkenny, Muswell Hill Primary
“ The way you conducted the session taught the Year 4 children so much about sound. During a plenary later that day, it was obvious that all the children had learnt a lot from the workshop” Irene Tyrell, Head of St Martin of Porres
“Thank you for delivering a wonderfully informative and hands on workshop to accompany our sound topic. The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and is evident from the work they completed afterwards clearly learnt a great deal. I will definitely recommend your workshop to the teachers of year 4 next year.” Clare O’Sullivan, Teacher at St Georges Catholic Primary School Sudbury.
