Sing a well known song such as “Happy Birthday”. Sing the song at normal speed. How does that make you feel? Now sing the song very, very quickly (loads of giggles!). How does that make you feel? Now sing Happy Birthday like a funeral drone. How does that make you feel? Try this with several other well known songs. Try with poetry as well.


    The speed of the music in many ways shapes the emotion and the feelings 
of the piece.

    Dear B4,What a cool song! I love how your voices chngae volume at certain parts, like when you repeat Haere Mai, E hine ma, and E tama ma. I also like how it is nice and slow for most parts, but then speeds up at other times. That must be a great song to sing every week at assembly, to welcome everyone back to school.We have been having so much fun learning about New Zealand from all of you. Today our classmate Maura, who was just in New Zealand near Christchurch, showed us a slideshow from her trip. Such a beautiful country! And when she showed the map of the country we all pointed out how the north island looked like a stingray because we remembered the story of Maui's magic hook. Thank you for sharing that wonderful song with all of us.Your blogging buddy from Connecticut,Mr. Salsich
