spring - week 1 - mini maestros
Today we began our unit on melodies! We learned Do Re Mi and about Johann Sebastian Bach.
Performance: Do-Re-Mi Warm Up and Mary Had a Little Lamb
We warmed up with Do-Re-Mi using hand symbols and instruements. We then applied Do-Re-Mi to Mary Had a Little Lamb while playing, singing, and using our hand symbols.
Repertoire: JS Bach
We learned about the composer Johann Sebastian Bach. We read a story about him and his family, listened to 3 of his songs and found the beat and how they made us feel. Enjoy 3 of Bach's most famous pieces in some great youtube recordings.
Today we took a field trip to the sanctuary to see one of Bach's instruments, the organ. We looked at the rows of keys and pedals and ALL the buttons!
