Unit 1 - Exploring Sounds
In this unit Grade 1 have been learning about how to make lots of different sounds. We've been using our voices, body percussion and learning about the instruments in the music room. We've also been listening to some exciting pieces of music that tell a story, including this one called The Little Train of the Caipira by a Brazillian composer called Heitor Villa-Lobos (1897 - 1959). The piece is about a little steam train travelling through the mountains in Brazil.
