We were very fortunate to have been visited by Gateshead Music Service last week, when they led us through a workshop all about music from around the world. This workshop inspired our Arts Around the World Week in school. Each class learned about a different country, but the music workshop covered them all.

Children throughout school learned about the different instruments from each country and heard about how these are used to make the unique sound from that place. Chinese music sounded very different to the music from Brazil or Mexico for example. All the children had lots of fun getting to know new music and have a go with different instruments.
