Winter 2 - Week 1 - mini maestros
This session we will be focusing on tempo, beat, and rhythm. Today we learned a scarf routine to Bizet's Les Toreadors.
Performance: Sweet Beats
We used boomwhackers to play with the song Sweet Beats (See video - we will be doing variations on this song to open class all semester) and do call and response rhythms. We then had fun with rhythm cards and learned quarter notes and rests!
Repertoire: Bizet Les
We learned about Georges Bizet from France and did a fun scarf routine every time the music changes (introducing musical form) to Les Toreadors. A fun and energetic piece about a toreador! I'd love for the kids to watch this video of the orchestra playing.
Instrument: Snare Drum
We had fun guessing what the instrument of the day could be and were excited to learn it's a drum! We took turns trying to play some of our new rhythms on the Snare Drum.
