Music: Grades 5-6

With your family, watch this video O Come O Come Emmanuel by the Piano Guys.

  • Use this time to quietly reflect on the meaning of Advent

Watch Tchaikovsky’s Dance of the Knights from the ballet Romeo and Juliet.

  • What is the expression on the dancers’ faces?
  • What emotions are they trying to portray?
  • What words can you use to describe the music?
  • Does this seem like a “dance” to you? Why or why not?

Compare with Tchaikovsky’s Dance of the Little Swans from the ballet Swan Lake.

  • How would you describe this dance?
  • What is the tempo (speed) of this dance?
  • Which instruments do you hear?
