The second year students demonstrated how they've applied what they learned in to first year of Let's Play Music to the piano in the second year! The students began their recital by beautifully singing their song that taught them the music alphabet. They continued by demonstrating their piano skills and concepts of chords and intervals! They accompanied themselves with the primary chords and intervals on the keyboards with, "Turtle Shells!" This year they added to their repertoire of rhythms, the dotted-quarter eighth-note rhythm! They love playing the song that taught them this called, "I'm an Indian!" The recital continued with a piece of music that teaches the basic fact that if the students practice everyday, they'll learn many songs! This is a difficult piece that combines all the skills they've learned and they played it so wonderfully! The students also got to demonstrate their skill of singing more complex harmony and concluded the recital with an expressive interpretation of Johannes Brahams’ Hungarian Dance No. 5! Such smarties, these kids :) They are just so fun to watch! At next year's recital these children will be performing their own composed pieces!
See you next year!
