Winter 1 - Week 4 - mini maestros
This week we were introduced to the C Chord (C-E-G), Vivaldi and the Four Seasons, and the violin!
Performance: C Chord
We built our C Chord with each student assigned a note name/color. We followed some sheet music and played our notes when it was time, including everyone playing together for the C Chord. Our song was called Chord Watching.
Repertoire: Vivaldi and The Four Season
We learned how Vivaldi wrote for a school of girls through the book, Vivaldi's Invisible Orchestra. We then talked about the four seasons and how they sound like each season. We had fun acting out each season as the music played.
Have fun doing the same at home with the video to the right!
Just like the soloist from the Four Seasons, we played the violin together. We learned what it was made of, counted its strings, and listened to its beautiful sound.
