Lesson 7: the Cello

Topic 7 explores the concept of ‘pitch’ through a comparison between two instruments from the ‘String Family’ – the violin, and new instrument, the cello.

In this lesson you will:

  • Explore the notion of ‘pitch’ (different sound frequencies), through a range of theoretical and practical activities.
  • Discover the different features of the cello, by appearance and sound.
  • Work in groups to develop aural and rhythmic skills by exploring the inter-related dimensions of music to build comparisons between instruments, while analysing the ‘Voyage to the Moon’ music.
