Class 6 - Music - Rodeo Hoedown by Aaron Copland

Class: Mrs Foye - Class 6 Year: 2019 - 2020

We started our new music theme this week. We focused on a fantastic piece of music by an American composer called Aaron Copland. After listening to the music we discussed our favourite part. We thought about what was going on in the first 20seconds and identified swirling music and spikey rhythms. We then put some actions to these, we swirled our hands for the swirling music and shook our partners hands for the spikey rhythms.
