Congratulations on your first TBS orchestra performance!
It is time to turn our attention to new repertoire (music). You received a copy of "The Blue Danube Waltz". We will be learning about why waltzes were an important part of European culture.
Here are 3 characteristics of a waltz:
- They ALWAYS have 3 beats per measure
- The tempo is graceful and used for dancing
- They originated in European countries that speak German
See you at school,
P.S. Please share a comment about the video or what you know about waltzes. I also put a copy of this piece in the "Listening Folder" for you to download or listen to.
