During the months of October and November students will be exploring expressive qualities in music. Students will have opportunities to use singing, instruments playing, dynamics levels (loud/soft), sound effects, legato (long connected notes), staccato (short notes) to create unique performances. Students will explore how these elements can be combined to tell the story of the song.
Many students make connections with the music and sound effects used in movies and TV shows. How would your favorite movie feel different without music and sound effect? Does the music enhance the story being told?
