Reading and music – Sounds Like A Story

Tuesday 09 January 2024

Today, we had the pleasure of welcoming Liz from the British Library to do another workshop with us.

This time, we linked together reading and music. It started by us listening to The Phoenix of Persia by Sally Pomme Clayton.

In groups, we practised with some instruments…


…and then analysed the story to match the characters to the desired sound.

It was a unique experience to think about the characters of a story compared to music in this way – describing music is called timbre.

Finally, it was time to create the rest of the story using our compositions. What a performance we gave!
