Music Appreciation Monday – Featuring the mandolin this week!
I love listening to the mandolin with its sweet relaxing sound. I often play Vivaldi’s mandolin music as background while I work at my desk.
Here is a mandolin piece I hope you enjoy: Minuetto afandangado performed by Manuel Munoz. There are several other mandolin pieces that will play from this same CD on Youtube. If you click over to Youtube and listen, you will find the other ones shown on the right side of the website. Let your children pick which one they like the best!
Does the mandolin sound like any other instruments you know?
If you would like to learn more about specific instruments of the orchestra, my Harmony Fine Arts Grade 5 plans have a complete year of instrument study along with an introduction to popular classical composers. Please take minute to pop over and download the sample and resource list to see if this year plan would help organize a year’s worth of music appreciation for your family.
