On Thursday morning our school enjoyed watching Tjupurru a very talented musician who was performing with a didjeribone. Most of us had not seen an didjeribone before, he explained to us that a didjeribone is an Australian made instrument that combines the elements of the didjeridoo and trombone. Tjupurru had a special microphone that he used with his didjerbone to make all sorts of interesting and excited sounds! We enjoyed it very much. Everyone clapped along to the beat and some children were even selected to get up to dance and record different sounds to make a song…
Here are some recounts from children in Room 3:
On Thursday Tjupurru came to visit us. He was using his didjeribone to make music! He asked us who had a birthday today. It was Jules birthday so he got to go on stage with Tjupurru. Next he played a song with animal noises, he made so many different noises. He played the music loud and we clapped. I liked Tjupurru because he was cool and funny.
Tjupurru came to visit us at the hall today. He was soo funny and exciting! First he showed us the didjeribone and told us how it worked. He made all sorts of noises with his microphone. Then he pretended to be a girl and brush his hair with the microphone. Everyone laughed and laughed. Next someone from every class got to go up the front. They all pretended to be chickens while he played the music. He played lots of things and he always said “do you want to hear more” we said “yes”. I loved the didjeribone.
