We've been studying the instrument families of the orchestra in second grade. I love to find examples of beautiful music that features individual instruments. This week we are studying the woodwind family and the oboe. Students did a lesson on mirroring in movement and worked with a partner to respond to the musical elements of the music they were listening to. Students were instructed to take turns as leaders. I chose to use the tune 'Gabriel's Oboe' by Ennio Moricone. The movement created by these young second grade boys left me speechless in its expressiveness.
I'm a toe-tappin, guitar-pickin', hummin' 'n drummin' spouse, and mom to three kids. I love being in nature, kayaking, travelling with my family, tending to my beehives and chickens and walking and training my crazy dog. Engaging with the world musically is very important to me. It's where I get my joy! Contact Mrs. Stover at email@example.com
