Classroom Ideas

This clip can be used when looking at classical guitar music and musical structure. Perhaps play the song a couple of times and invite the children to identify the main theme. You could hand out cards in two different colours. Play the clip again and ask the children to hold up one colour when they hear the main theme and the other colour when they hear a different theme. You could ask the children to find a title for the piece or even write lyrics for it. What kind of event or what kind of feelings do they think the music expresses and what kind of story does it tell?
