Using the language of music K-8

28 February 2021

Graham Sattler explores ways to talk about music with your students and how to make these conversations features of every classroom.

We have duration, pitch, dynamics, tone colour and structure…

One of the significant things inside the syllabus and outside the syllabus is being able to talk about (music). Music is the art form that is invisible…

It is not just the sounds that we hear that make music meaningful, it’s the change, it’s the difference, it’s the contrast.

When we are talking about describing sound, there is really no wrong answer… The wonderful thing about music is you can just do it!
