The Sound of Music

Posted on

The halls were filled with the sound of music…violin music, that is!  Our class had a unique privilege this last week to listen to Tricia Park and Taylor Morris play the violin for us.  So, how did we luck out and get to have them come and play for us?  Well, Taylor Morris is really good friends with one of the parents in our class.  Talk about knowing people in the right places!

Their presentation was so entertaining and informative for the students.  

Take a look:

One of the great things about their visit was that we were learning about fables the same week they visited.  Without knowing this, they played Peter and the Wolf written by Sergei Prokofiev.  This provided a great connection between the text and the world for us.  An interesting facts about Sergei Prokofiev is that he also wrote the composition for Cinderella and Romeo and Juliet.

Afterwards, we wrote thank you cards for them.  They enjoyed reading them and even posted a picture of them on Facebook.

Do you know the difference between a fiddle and a violin?  

What is your favorite instrument to listen to?

    • Lola’s mom,

      Thank you for your comment. I bet you were pretty good after playing for 8 years. Do you still play or have your violin? I wonder if Lola will follow in your footsteps.

  1. I am so glad that you had the opportunity to meet and experience the musical talents of Tricia Park and Taylor Morris. How exciting to see how music connected to the focus of your learning in class. Thank you for sharing the video so all can enjoy!
