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 they 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 & Percussion

The session lasts approximately 90 minutes and costs £95 per class

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.

    Excellent workshop. The children thoroughly enjoyed it and it was a great introduction to their sound topic. Would definitely book Will again for next year to kick start our sound topic. I would highly recommend him.


    Will Embliss has been coming to Tiverton for the past eight years with his Science of Sound workshop that is great revision just before year 6 SATs. Will and his science workshops are inclusive and engaging.The interactive nature means that all pupils are able to participate and further consolidate their knowledge. The children absolutely love the workshops and talk about them ( and re-enact them!) long after the event is over.

    Thank you for coming to Tiverton wih your interactive workshops last week, Will! The children in year 4 enjoyed the interactive nature of the workshops and the content really supported their science topic of sound. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
