Today's special task is a musical one!

Today, your task is to have a go at playing some different songs on the virtual piano. I am going to give you the notes for the song (how it goes)  and I want you to see if you can play it! You must play it in the correct order to get the song right!

Virtual Piano

Make sure you click 'letter notes' at the top so that you can see which key is which note.

Your song is...

B A G A B B B

A A A
B B B

B A G A B B B

G A A B A G

 

Send me an email when you have worked out what the song is and I can give you some more songs to play!
