WEEK Six

This week it’s your job to challenge Matt!

Club & Junior Band Members:

  • Write down a list of five animals, each with a different number of syllables (e.g. duck, kangaroo, etc)
  • ‘Play’ each animal carefully, choosing a different note for each syllable. If you can, place the correct emphasis on each syllable (e.g. elephant, hippopotamus, etc)
  • Record these, making sure you say before each one: ‘Animal 1’ then play it.
  • Send us these, and Matt will try to guess each animal.
  • You can email separately the answers to Helen if you wish.
  • Although we won’t expect you to give Matt £1 if he guesses them correctly, we’ll definitely make sure you receive £1 for your entry.

Intermediate and Senior Wind Band Members:

  • You can do a similar Challenge to the one above.
  • But for you, write a list of 6 countries, each with a different number of syllables
  • ‘Play’ each country carefully, choosing a different note for each syllable, but when using two or more notes, make sure the notes are from a minor key.
  • Also, make sure you place the correct emphasis on each syllable (e.g. England)
  • Record these, making sure you say before each one: ‘1st Country/ 2nd Country etc’ then play it.
  • Send us these, and Matt will try to guess each country.
  • You can email separately the answers to Helen if you wish.
  • Although we won’t expect you to give Matt £1 if he guesses them correctly, we’ll definitely make sure you receive £1 for your entry.

Good luck!
