Lesson 3: Cedric Cello

Topic 3 explores the theme of ‘Family’ through the second instrument within the Voyage To The Moon orchestra – the Cello. The cello is from the same ‘instrument family’ as the violin – the String Family – and so similarities and differences between these ‘family members’ are explored.
In lesson 3 you will:

  • Explore similarities and differences between our family members, leading to the connection between different instruments within the same ‘family’. 
  • Continue developing ‘pitch’ skills, in relation to both the violin and cello.
  • Build listening and analytical skills through the music.
  • Respond to the music using instruments and actions appropriately.
  • Explore the role of the cello in the Voyage to the Moon music and story.
  • VTM music: 2nd verse, chorus & 3rd verse
