Chinese Music Workshop 2016

On Tuesday 19th January 2016, Year 7 had the privilege of meeting Joanna Zeng Qiu who delivered some Chinese Music Workshops. In the music department we cover a module which looks at Chinese culture and their music. Joanna brought some authentic Chinese musical instruments. She sang music that you would expect to hear in a Chinese Opera and played some music on each one with virtuosic skill. Pupils were able participate with songs, performing rhythms on Chinese gongs and drums, as well as playing music on the erhu (Chinese violin) and listening to background information about how music fits into Chinese culture. It was a very enjoyable day of workshops.
