New: A Magical Musical History Tour in 30 Instruments!

Magical Musical History Tour in 30 instruments!

Suitable for Key Stages 2 & 3

Description of session and Key concepts covered:

A fun, chronologically interactive session that explores the history of music through the development and use of instruments and notation from Ancient Times to Victorian England. A look at how musical instruments were made and played; how musical styles reflected changing fashions, the influences of war, religion and foreign exploration. Includes opportunities to try out some instruments, learn period songs and dances too. This session can draw upon local musical influences and famous people to reinforce prior learning and can focus on a particular historic period if required.

You can book A Merrie Noyse (2 costumed musicians in school) for whole or half days sessions. All prices quoted are inclusive of milage. We have enhanced CRB/DBS status and Public Liability Insurance through the Musicians Union. Risk assessments for all activities can also be made available on request.

Depending on the size of your year group or schools, we can work with anything from 10-120 pupils per day in a series of hands on workshops linked to your chosen theme. Why not add archery too with Pheon Archery – look at the page in our menu!
