KS1 Music: Thunder Jam - Weather

Classical composer Antonio Vivaldi inspires the thunder Jam group to draw what they hear.

The music of Vivaldi inspires Ben, Lottie, Mia, Ajay and Akshay to draw what they hear. Through Vivaldi they learn how music can inspire pictures and symbols

Antonio Vivaldi wrote The Four Seasons in the early Classical period and features four movements, Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter.

Each movement sounds different and represents the season they are named after, for example Spring is full of energy in a major key signature, whereas Winter sounds harsh and is in a minor key.
