L. V. Beethoven, Symphony no.9 mvt.4 ( Ode to Joy )

We are listening to Ode to Joy in class and at home. Not just hearing it, but listening to its complete orchestration. The children will be practicing a step up from audiation (hearing music in the head) as they play this on the piano. They are 'modeling'. By listening to the piece over and over the sound gets into their ears and they will hear the full orchestration when they play it on the piano.

This is a great video of the 4th movement being performed! They've been listening to the instruments, this is what they look like and how they are played!
