'Peter and the Wolf' performed by Year 3
9 October 2020 (by abentley)
This week has been Year 3's music week! We created compositions to accompany the start of the story 'Peter and the Wolf' written by Prokofiev.
This week we discussed how you can use music to create atmosphere and show effects like a gentle breeze, leaves rustling, the sun shining, clouds drifting and other sounds in a story. We discussed what they might sound like to suit Prokofiev's story of 'Peter and the Wolf' and whether we should have a variety of hitting/shaking/scraping and tuned percussion instruments.
We then discussed how to put all sounds together to make one composition! Click here and scroll down to see our final performance.
