Session 1 - 'sounds'
The main objective of this session was to engage students with sounds made with ordinary objects and more conventional percussion instruments.

Here are some pictures of work in progress:
Session 4 - 'playing'
The main objective of this session was to engage students with playing/initiating sound. Pupils played the Talking Tiles in place of guitar for our welcome-song, then used the tiles to collect recordings of themselves playing the outside instruments.
Here are some pictures of pupils playing and recording the outside instruments:
