The Michael Faraday Ukulele Orchestra is continuing to improve with some great advancements being made by some of the members. All Year 4 pupils receive weekly tuition from Lorraine, our expertise ukulele teacher. Any pupils that wish to continue with their musical learning are invited to attend the weekly after school Ukulele Orchestra sessions.
A group of our Year 5 girls have developed their understanding of the interest to such an advanced stage that they have started to write their own songs. The Orchestra has been receiving guidance on suitable chord changes, and how to write a short, snappy song that is ideal for the ukulele.
We are incredibly proud to share above a song composed by a selection of our Year 5 pupils. The song title said it all – Best Friends is a moving song that tells how the pupils first met in the Michael Faraday Nursery, and they have continued their friendship through a love of playing the ukulele.
