Max Reeder performs with pupils to realise a graphic score designed by one of the Inner London Education Authority’s inspectors, Hamish Preston.
Certain percussion instruments were suggested by Preston, such as glockenspiel, metallophone, xylophone and triangle. Graphic scores work particularly well with the expressiveness of percussion.
Percussion can be a very useful tool in exploring the link between movement and music. See below for resources on the subject. It can also be a fruitful conversation with older students when thinking about the link between music performance and culture, as percussion carries many different cultural significances across the globe. Time signatures can also form part of this conversation, as there are many more to be explored from outside of the classical western tradition.
