Rock & Pop Strings Workshop

On Friday 5th May, Ms Tori Rushton came to The Croft School to present Rock & Pop Strings Workshop. At the beginning we danced to the music and learnt the rhythm to a song called ‘Smells like Teen Spirit’ by Nirvana!

Tori put us into two groups, one for the rhythm section and one for the melody. The violins and violas got to turn their instruments on their side and play them like a guitar!

Tori taught some more advanced pupils the melody. Even Mr Shortman got his violin out and played along. It was really exciting to do a new style of music. Tori showed us her electric cello which we all thought was awesome. As we drew closer to the performance we began to put the whole piece together and it sounded great. All the parents thought that it was COOL!


Overall we really enjoyed playing with Tori and if we were given another opportunity to do so, we would definitely say “Yes!”
