Visit to Year 9/10 Music by Ms Di Suthons

The Year 9/10 Music class is currently studying Baroque Music. On Tuesday 25 March, Ms Di Suthons visited the class and demonstrated her two viola da gambas to the students. These instruments are typical of the Baroque Era. The Music students were lucky enough to get to try out the instruments as well. Blake Murnane and Vance McDonald very quickly figured out Smoke on the Water, Thunderstruck and Seven Nation Army on the viols to the delight of Ms Suthons! I’d like to thank Ms Suthons for making the time to visit us and show us her instruments, and for allowing the students to try them out.
