This year, we welcomed Sami from Year 5 (tabla), his dad Munir (harmonium and vocals) and family friend, Jugnu (dholak) to our school for a very special World Music Day performance. All of our children from F2 to Year 6 got to experience this beautiful and emotional show.

This is one of our favourite songs at Forest Fields...

from Year 1 all the way to Year 6

So we're making it our official song of World Music Day 2023!

What do we learn during our music lessons at Forest Fields?



Breathing Exercises!

Protecting our voices is very important



Did you know that your voice is your first instrument and using it can help you to learn about pitch, rhythm and performance. It can even help to spread joy and a sense of belonging!


Body Percussion!

Did you know that you can create entire pieces of music using just your body and voice?!


Musical Elements! 

If we understand what pitch, pulse and rhythm mean, we can use them in our compositions



There are many types of graphic and standard notation we can use to show off what we have composed


Musical Genres!

Do you know your Balinese Gamelan from your Beatbox?!


Listen & Respond!

There are many ways to respond to a piece of music - movement is a good start!


Let's Compose!

Lots of fun!



I bet you never knew how much talent we had in our Forest Fields Community! heart
