spring - week 3 - mini maestros
Today we continued our unit on melodies. We mastered Merrily We Roll Along and discovered Mozart's Twinkle Variations. We also had a look at the guitar.
Performance: Do-Re-Mi Warm Up and Merrily We Roll Along
We warmed up with Do-Re-Mi using hand symbols and instruments. We applied Do-Re-Mi to Merrily We Roll Along while playing, singing, and using our hand symbols.
Repertoire: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
We learned about the composer Mozart. We read a story about him and his songs, particularly the Twinkle Variations. We then listened to Twinkle and grabbed a new star every time we heard a new variation start.
Today we took a look at the guitar, explored how it is different than the ukulele, and learned about chords v. melody. We all got a chance to play!
