Tyger Valley shows appreciation to music

Creating sound with liquid and glass.

The Tyger Valley College’s annual music appreciation week began with a harmonious bang in an assembly dedicated to musical performances by learners, staff and ensembles.

Performances included violin, piano, percussion ensemble, a blues trio (two guitars and vocals), a saxophone medley, and a mass group item.

The aim of music appreciation week at Tyger Valley College is to give learners the opportunity to experience and explore the many facets of music through different perspectives.

Music literally infiltrated every subject and facet of life at the college.

Learners learnt about the music industry and its key role players; shared their personal experiences and interpretation of music with each other.

In maths classes learners divided, added and subtracted using music.

In science learners learnt about sound waves and frequencies experimenting with glasses and liquid to create sound in science.

They were given the creative task of making their own musical instruments using recycled items – with some performing popular songs on their makeshift instruments.

The older children shared a song of their choice which had a special meaning to them with their peers and designed their own album covers.

Music students played their own instruments for their classmates, with some staff members reciprocating and playing their instruments for them.

The younger learners engaged in group discussions sharing their understanding of music appreciation and what music means to them on a personal level.

The learners were surprised by a guest performance from members of the Boys’ High School Pipe Band.

The pipers were met with excited cheers and applause as the learners sat and listened enamoured by the instruments and traditional attire.

In all, the music appreciation week proved a successful endeavour in which learners gained knowledge and experience while enjoying themselves.
