Thriller - Halloween Virtual Ensemble

We hope that you are all enjoying being back at school and are staying safe!

As our last Virtual Ensemble was such a success, we thought we would do another one and this time with a Halloween theme! For our next ensemble we will be doing 'Thriller' by Michael Jackson. We would love it if pupils, parents and tutors could record themselves playing the piece of music!

Below, you can download the part for the instrument that your child plays.  There are options for 2 difficulty levels for each instrument so your child should be able to find a part that they can manage.

  1. Alto Saxophone 1
  2. Alto Saxophone 2
  3. Clarinet 1
  4. Clarinet 2
  5. Flute 1
  6. Flute 2
  7. Mini Clarinet 1
  8. Mini Clarinet 2
  9. Trumpet/Cornet 1
  10. Trumpet/Cornet 2

You can listen to each of the parts by clicking on your Instrument and Part below. Alternatively, you can play along with the full score by Clicking HerePlease be aware that there is 4 beat introduction - if you have any bars rest at the beginning of your music, this will start after the first 4 beats.

  1. Alto Saxophone 1
  2. Alto Saxophone 2
  3. Clarinet 1
  4. Clarinet 2
  5. Flute 1
  6. Flute 2
  7. Mini Clarinet 1
  8. Mini Clarinet 2
  9. Trumpet/Cornet 1
  10. Trumpet/Cornet 2

It’s really important that your child plays along with their individual part (or full score if you prefer) - this is to ensure that they keep in time with the music, so a multi-gadget approach is best – follow these instructions and you can’t go wrong:
  1. Download your child's part and listen to the audio through earphones.
  2. Ask another member of your household to record you playing your part along with the audio, this way you will keep in time with all of the parts.
  3. When recording your part, please ensure that your video is in landscape.
  4. Once you have a recording that you are happy with, please email it to us by Friday 23rd October at info@mfsf.org.uk – this is easily done via wesendit.com or any other suitable file-sharing platform.

We will then make a video featuring all of the submissions and share it with you all on social media on Saturday 31st October (please note that by submitting your child’s video you are consenting to their video being published online).

*To get in the true Halloween spirit we are asking pupils, parents and tutors to dress up in something spooky! A prize will be given to the best dressed pupil*
