The Viola

Posted in Music

We are learning the viola in class. So far we have learned what the strings are called (C,G,D,A), learned how to hold the instrument and pluck on the open strings. We have started to learn how to hold the bow too:there is lots to remember!

We had a fantastic time learning more about ancient Egypt at the Royal Albert Memorial Museum in Exeter. We took part in three workshops: mummification, scribe school and senet (an ancient Egyptian game that is lots much fun to play). We also had a tour of the museum with a focus on the ancient Egyptian artefacts.
