Music Appreciation Monday – Ludwig van Beethoven
This is such a melancholy piece of music. After listening with your children, ask their opinion. What emotions do they feel when they listen? Can they dance to this piece of music? I like to listen to this with my eyes closed and really feel the music.
Older students may wish to start a composer listening log for each of the composers we listen to over the coming months. You can click and download a free log above. You can find some suggestions on how to use the listening log and some examples in this entry: Appreciating Great Music: For Children and Moms Too.
