In Music this week, NSU had a surprise visit from our Juilliard Curriculum Specialist, Kathryn Andersen who led the children on an interesting lesson about rhythm.

They learned about Beethoven’s 5th symphony and how he used short and long notes to compose the allegro (first movement). Our students did their own rhythmic composition using pictures of short and long animals as notation.

Kathryn closed the lesson by playing some of their favourite rhymes on the violin.
