This Week in Music Class – October 21

We’re putting rhythm and melody together this week!! Wow, that’s gonna be fun!!  By the end of the week we’ll be playing a traditional American folk song on the piano with the right hand (the melody) to prepare for chords next week!!! That is like, the most amazing and exciting news ever!! Right??? Hmmm, can you tell that the LA Word of the Week at the Middle School is HYPERBOLE… If you’re listening to music, you certainly won’t have to listen for very long to hear hyperbole in the lyrics!!
