Sound Maps in Year 2

Today in Year 2 we listened to four pieces of classical music:

Beethoven 5th Symphony

Mozart 40th Symphony

Tchaikovsky Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy

Tchaikovsky Swan Lake

We moved to the pieces, talked about the pieces and drew what came to our minds when we listened to the music. Ww worked out what instruments played what part of the music and used our knowledge to predict what would happen next in the music.

We then drew sound maps to explain what we knew about the music.

Can you listen to the links above and look at the visualisations and workout what is happening in the music? What instruments are making the sounds?
