In September we were so excited that the Travelling Tuba Company came to visit us in school.
Travelling by Tuba is an exciting presentation tracing the history of brass instruments featuring weird and exotic examples from all over the world.
The journey began with a Viking and his horn, an ancient aboriginal didjeridu and a Fijian conch shell.
We travelled through time and heard music of the medieval courts played on a band of original fourteenth century instruments.
We heard the postman’s posthorn played 400 years ago on the royal mail coach. We met the first tuba, the weird and wonderful serpent and watched as it grew valves and becomes the tuba as we know it today.
