Playing percussion instruments - Evelyn Glennie
Evelyn Glennie is a percussion player performing at solo concerts. She is an enormously successful musician despite being deaf. She has learned to use her whole body to 'hear' sounds. For example, she describes feeling the vibrations on her cheekbones, scalp and chest.
This clip could be used in a variety of ways. It could be used in Science or Music to understand how sound happens when something vibrates and how sounds are transmitted through the air. The clip could also be used in PSHE to illustrate difference and living with and overcoming the effects of disabilities.
