I hope you enjoyed pretending to play the instruments today. You can see videos about the pieces of music we listened to in the extension section of the lesson. You might also like to try Googling or exploring YouTube and other sites on the Internet.
Teacher/parent/carer to student: Which instrument did you enjoy playing the most? When you were listening to the last piece of music, could you hear which instruments were playing? What did you hear?
Teacher checking in with student: Which instrument did you enjoy playing the most? When you were listening to the last piece of music, could you hear which instruments were playing? What did you hear? Perhaps your grownup could make a video of you playing your favorite instrument and share it with me.
