This week, we are jumping into the water to experience the music of an aquarium and a swan. Both movements are beautifully calm and relaxing to listen to. Just back and enjoy the music.
First, we have the Aquarium:
Notice how the music has a rippling effect (the high, fast notes played by one of the pianos) - what do you think this represents? How does this music make you feel?
Now, let's listen to the music of The Swan:
You may notice that in The Swan, we also have a piano playing the ripping sounds of the water, although the pitch is a little lower than that of the aquarium.
Which piece of music do you like best? Why?
I hope you feel very calm and relaxed now! Any time you feel upset, anxious or angry, you might find that music like this helps you to feel calmer. Do you have any favourite songs or pieces of music that help you feel calm and happy? What other activities do you do to relax?
Have a lovely week!
