Huge congratulations to the Rock Steady children and their teacher Emily, for putting on a fantastic concert to parents this afternoon. Since September, for 30 minutes each week, the Rock Steady children have been attending their lessons, learning how to play pop and rock songs on live instruments. Years 1, 2 and 3 children learned the verse and chorus of Ghostbusters, moving between two different notes at the correct time on guitars and keyboards. The drummers playing two separate drum beats for each section and the singer working on her projection, after just 5 weeks with the band. The year 2, 3 and 4 band learned Seven Nation Army, working together to independently play their song. They learned an introduction and a verse, moving between 3 notes on keys and guitars, with the drummers moving between 3 drum beats and a drum fill - singers singing in unison out to the audience.
The year 4, 5 and 6 band learned Running Up That Hill, and were set the challenge of playing a full song unassisted. The guitars and keys moving between 3 different parts all containing different notes and rhythms and the drummer playing 3 drum beats and keeping the rhythm of the band held down. The children were amazing, and clearly loved performing! Well done, you all ROCKED!
