Welcome to music  

This week we will be thinking about:

  • Listening to music and the thinking about how it makes us feel. - does it make us think of anything?
  • Finding the beat in a song.
  • Following the beat using cups.


Listen and Appraise

What instruments do you hear?

How does this make you feel?

What is the tempo of this music? (Is it fast or slow?)
