David Coffin Enrichment at EGS

East Gloucester resident David Coffin presented his "Music from the King’s Court — Exploring the Early Winds" enrichment program to the East Gloucester Elementary School 3rd-graders, who are learning to play the recorder this year.

David brought an impressive collection of wind instruments, and played almost all of them for the spellbound kids.  He demonstrated that the ocarina, bombard, recorder, slide whistle, gemshorn, organ pipe were essentially the same instrument.  He even played a water bottle and a drinking straw!

David Coffin is remarkably talented, and is wonderful with kids.  I strongly recommend him for any school looking for a music-based enrichment program!

David’s web site has a page that demonstrates these wind instruments:  http://www.davidcoffin.com/index.php?page=kings-court-meet-the-instruments

    It was a fabulous presentation!

    All GPS 3rd-graders are learning to play the recorder in their music classes, and I believe that David Coffin will bed visiting the other elementary schools as well.

    PS He’s playing a bombard in that first photo; it’s quite loud, and takes a LOT of breath. The kids loved it!
