Music Explorer … “It’s a Small World”🌎 In this Music Unit, you are invited on the journey of being a Music Explorer discovering the music, songs, dances and chants of different countries and cultures. Music is in EVERY culture and is used in MANY different ways. There are lullabies, children’s songs, festival dances, action songs and spiritual songs and soooo much more! All music has beat and rhythm, high and low sounds. Music can be fast or slow, loud or soft. It can have different kinds of instruments and different kinds of voices. These are like CLUES for the Music Explorer. As you begin your music journey, look for the treasure chest icon to know which activities are super important to complete your journey into World Music. And, remember to always upload your responses into your Music folder ☺ First Step of the Journey ...🥾 Today we are learning about what makes this song different from other songs.
