My Favourite Things

Students at our Community School site have been studying Jazz in their music sessions. We listened to saxophonist John Coltrane's version of the song "My Favourite Things" from the Sound of Music.

Then we recorded our own version. It's structured like a classic jazz piece. We played the melody at the start,then two students soloed on the piano - a vocal verse in the middle - two more piano solos and then the tune again to finish.

A sang
I played the melody on the piano
J played a bass pattern on the piano
M played the electric guitar

Everyone improvised a solo on the piano and accompanied the other solos on the drum. Order of solos A I J M

Martin helped out on piano and guitar
