Class 4/5 R

Exploring Rondo form

Taking our inspiration from Wagner's 'Ride of the Valkyries' we have composed our own version. We have a main theme which keeps reappearing between other musical sections.

Chocolate Molinillo

Watch our fabulous performance of this Spanish song. There are so many different things happening at the same time - we really had to concentrate to maintain our ostinato patterns.

4/5R's Chocolate rap

Part 1: We worked in groups to compose rhythm patterns using the names of chocolate bars. In the video we are reading from the graphic scores we created where we altered the size of the chocolate bar image to indicate the dynamics. As a class, we wrote a rap to share the information we had learned about the Maya and the history of chocolate and then we discussed how we should structure the sections. We hope you enjoy the finished piece.
