Music through the Ages

Simon O’ Dwyer came to our school last week .He brought cool old Irish instruments. He told us a really good story. The story was about fishermen. They got horns and they were known as the horn players. Simon bought in the first flute and it was a stone with a hole in the top. The second flute was a bone with a hole in the top, another one in the middle and four others at the bottom. There was the bullhorn, the castanets, the goat horn and the ram horn. There was a small European snail shell and a large African snail shell and a bronze trumpet that was really really long. They made the best music I’ve ever heard. We had lots of fun. It was really funny when he blew the horns because his face went red all over. He was really great to listen to!!!!!!
