William Tell Overture - 3rd-4th grade

The students in 3rd -4th grade have been listening and studying Gioachino Rossini's "Finale" from the Willam Tell Overture.  Our focus was steady beat and form.  The students played small percussion instruments as we went through the form and practiced following the conductor.  I think they really liked it - they asked to do it again!  Ask your child about the history of the hero "William Tell".  If you would like to listen to this piece as a family, you can download a recording at music4you.lorenz.com.
