Shaldon Festival Outreach 2009

Wells Cathedral School

This year Jan Faulkner, the Wells Cathedral School Outreach Officer, together with four of the young musicians who played in the evening Shaldon Festival Concert, travelled down in advance of the main group to give two workshops to local primary school children in Teignmouth. Expertly pitched to the different age groups, the morning workshop was with a class of 8 year olds at Inverteign Primary School and in the afternoon a science class of pupils aged 11 at Hazeldown Primary School, during which the mechanics of sound production in the four main woodwind instruments were described and demonstrated, i.e. flute, oboe, clarinet and bassoon.
