We are off to a wonderful start here in the music room. We've been reviewing concepts from last year and exploring new ones. September is usually all about beat and rhythm for us. Grade two students are reviewing the difference between steady beat and rhythm and discovering music vocabulary and their meaning such as tempo. Grade three students are having thoughtful discussions about how composers and performers use elements of music such as tempo to change the mood or meaning of a piece. In the coming few weeks we'll dive deeper into beat and rhythm and move from experiencing and responding to creating and performing.
