This week, our ABC in studio students joined Henry and began their study of the woodwind family. We also continued to work with three note, M-R-D melodies, quarter notes, double eighth notes, and quarter rests (ti-ti, ta, and shh) and composed a song as a class. And we began working with the musical concepts Forte and Piano (loud and soft).
Here are some great free resources on the instruments of the orchestra, including the woodwind family.
And here is another adorable video from the folks at Music K-8 magazine, this one illustrating the concepts Forte and piano wonderfully.
If you haven't become a fan of Kindermusik at the University of Memphis on facebook, please do so. You could even win 10 free song downloads in our 100 fans, 100 songs challenge :). http://www.facebook.com/KMatUMCMS. Tell your friends, too!
Have a great week, and we'll see you next time!
