What is sound?
Why does music sound nice?
How does your voice work?
These two family science sessions are designed to teach parents and children about the science behind music.
In the first session (14th April 2015), we’ll explore the questions ‘What is sound?’ and ‘What is the difference between sound and music?’
The second session (15th April 2015) will focus on singing. Both sessions will include a live choir and exciting demonstrations.
The events run on two successive days.
Tuesday 14th April 2015 – 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm
Wednesday 15th April 2015 – 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm
The same ticket allows entry for both events.
The day is suitable for children between (and including) the school years of 6 and 8.
