Storyline Writing to Beethoven Rooms 311 & 205

Today, students in the intermediate grades 3rd-5th learned how dynamics can add expression to a musical piece. They listened to let Ludwig Van Beethoven's fifth Symphony in C minor as an example. Beethoven was known for is masterpiece symphonies and turning them into a form of self expression. Students applied this musical expression to their instruments, performance, and their story line writing. As they listened to the fifth Symphony, they wrote an ad lib. storyline that complements the expression and mood of the musical piece; therefore, reinforcing their writing skills as they learn the music content- Dynamics!!! Students were eager to share and read their creative stories aloud to the class.
