Makin’ Music with Ms. Linda
Woodwind Instruments: Piccolo, Flute, Clarinet, Bass Clarinet, and the Oboe have been chosen so far. We watched people playing these on YouTube and then we incorporated them into the “Fine Musicians” song.
For the “hands on” instruments I chose a xylophone, tubular bells, and my rainbow bells. We also used many percussion instruments to accompany us as we sang “The Ants Go Marching”, playing loudly (forte) during the boom boom part of the song and softly (piano) during the verses.
Music Theory: We have been focusing on the 4 different instrument families, looking at instruments on YouTube then discussing the characteristics that make them qualify as a member of the family to which they belong. We also have continued to become familiar with the musical symbols such as treble clef, bass clef, time signature, sharps, flats, notes, and rests.
Musical Theater: “The Window” by Trout Fishing in America and “Wake Up- It’s Spring!”
As always it’s a real pleasure for me to make music at Children’s House! I hope your child has been enjoying it too.
