Play along with the Pianists!

Our students are very familiar with this member of The Carnival of the Animals…it’s the pianists! Every class, our students play along with our own wonderful pianists who play the songs of all the other animals for them. The pianist is honored to bring the sounds of the animals to life when paws or claws make it a bit difficult to play an instrument themselves. We’ve only got a few more members to add…tune in next week to meet our newest animal!

Music Makes the Mules Race!

This week, we are learning the racing song of the Mules in The Carnival of the Animals. Mules are usually stubborn and slow, but music excites them and they go racing through the country side to the majestic blasts of the french horn! Join us next week as we meet our next instrument and animal! We’ve almost me the whole carnival, so you won’t want to miss it!

Swimming Sweetly with the Swans!

This week, we learned all about the grace of the swan. The swan glides gently along the water and is represented by the beautiful, long sounds of the cello. Check out what the swan song sounds like below and join us next week to find out about our next orchestral member!
