One player was from the 1950’s and one from the 1980’s! Their record sleeve designs turned out amazingly, see for yourself by walking through the stairway gallery as you enter the school!

Grade 4 Music Incursion

The Grade 4 students had a chance to interact with old music equipment thanks to our visitors Sev and Alex. Sev and Alex, also known as Tree-Angles brought in two old record players, one from 1950’s and one from 1980’s. They also brought in lots of vinyl for listening to but also for appreciating the artwork on these records. The students enjoyed ‘scratching’ the sound by pushing the record back and forward under the needle. They also did drawings in response to sounds.
