spring - week 2 - mini maestros
Today we continued our unit on melodies. We mastered Hot Cross Buns and discovered Fanny Mendelssohn. We also had a look at the trumpet.
Performance: Do-Re-Mi Warm Up and Hot Cross Buns
We warmed up with Do-Re-Mi using hand symbols and instruments. We applied Do-Re-Mi to Hot Cross Buns while playing, singing, and using our hand symbols.
Repertoire: Fanny Mendelssohn
We learned about the composer Fanny Mendelssohn. We read a story about her and her songs for each month, listened to 3 of her songs while trying to keep balloons in the air. Enjoy Fanny's music together at home!
Today we took a look at the trumpet with our trumpet expert, Jason (Ms. Karen's son!). He played Hot Cross Buns for us, showed us low and high notes, and we investigated the instrument together.
