Test on WEST SIDE STORY this week and then we continue to learn to play the 12-bar Blues. We'll listen to the music of Robert Johnson and write our own Blues lyrics and melodies. We also play it to record our blues for parents to listen to.
Finishing the Baroque Age, students should make sure they play Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring (JS Bach) for me on the piano, guitar or other instrument sometime in the next two weeks if you haven't already done so.
We'll move on to the Classical Age and spend our time studying Mozart and Classical Form. We'll watch an edited version of the movie AMADEUS.
