Music Assembly

This half term, we have been listening to a vast array of popular songs played by the saxophone as we enter and leave assemblies each week. Last week, we were joined by a special guest, Mr Morris, who is a saxophonist and headteacher of the Ardleigh Green Learning Federation. 

Mr Morris explained the different components on a saxophone, from the Ligature (reed on the mouthpiece) to the keys. We learnt that we can remember the four types of saxophone using SAT-B: soprano, alto, tenor and baritone. Mr Morris also had two volunteers up to the front of the assembly as his conductors and as he played, the conductors had to use their hands to dictate the volume used and the length of his notes. 

To finish the assembly, Mr Morris played his saxophone to "A Whole New World."
