Click on
BBC Ten Pieces Tasters and scroll down to Draw a portrait and write a musical memory…Music and Art

First… watch the clip about Elgar’s Enigma Variations

Then… watch CBBC’s Naomi Wilkinson’s video and draw a picture of someone you miss and write about a piece of music that reminds you of them.

Send your artwork and music selection to your special person to show them they are in your thoughts. We’d love to see it too.
