Using Prokofiev’s timeless classic, Peter and the Wolf, teaching artist Stephanie Daige teaches students:

  • basic music vocabulary, including pitch, rhythm, timbre, and tempo
  • to identify different musical instruments by sight and sound
  • to express themselves verbally when discussing the music
  • to identify characteristics of different animals
  • to understand the sound is caused by vibration
  • to understand how different how different instruments create sound

Teaching artist Stephanie Daige will demonstrate various instruments for the students and explain how each creates sound in a unique way.  Students will become involved in the exploration by listening to the music; discussing the composer’s choices of timbre, pitch, tempo, and rhythm for each character; creating puppets to represent the different characters; and moving to the music using their puppets.

It is a great way for students to have fun while learning about music, science, and practicing their language arts skills.
