Homework: p. 32–35 Students can read about Mozart, the composer of "A Royal Problem" (which is really Symphony No. 40 in G minor) and need to label, add a repeat sign and double bar line, and determine which themes are major and minor. (See p. 60 in the Reference Section for the answers.)
Song of Joy

Speaking of playing as an ensemble staff, check out this live instrument flash mob of Ode to Joy in Spain!

For my convenience, I have preloaded content for the whole semester. I will update each future post with specific time-sensitive info before I send the link each week. If you choose to read ahead you might see details that don’t apply to your child’s class. For this reason I do not recommend reading ahead. Thank you!
