Music Appreciation Assemblies


This half-term (September-October 2019), Mr Johnston's assemblies are devoted to music appreciation. We listen to a wide variety of music and try to identify the instruments, the style and the mood of the music. We also close our eyes and talk about what pictures the music conjures up in our heads.

Below is the list of the pieces of music we have listened to each week. You may be able to listen to some of these tracks free (and legally) using Spotify or Youtube and should be able to download them from the usual outlets such as iTunes and Amazon*:
