Celtic Roots Community Music Academy

Package 5 -  Instrumental Craft and Design Project  

Material Objectives: To have the pupils make a simple woodwind instrument (small flute) from cheaply-available everyday materials, alongside an understanding of how it works. Also, to learn to play simple traditional tunes and tunes of their choice on it, both solo and ensemble. Minimum outcomes should be that every pupil ends up with their own self-made piccolo flute and is able to sound it in a musical fashion and play a scale and a simple tune.

Education objectives: 

The course self-evidently hits many curriculum targets in a cross-curricular way, and in particular goes towards meeting some of the new cultural education plan requirements as well as incorporating applied mathematics, science, design and music.
