A Carnival of Animals
Marjie Van Gunten
12 teaching units in music, creative movement and oral
language based upon Carnival of The Animals by Camille
Saint-Saëns. The lessons introduce young children to
classical music; provide experiences in the elements of
creative dance; offer beginning experiences in the
musical elements of rhythm, melody, form, texture, timbre, and
harmony; introduce the use of hand percussion and
mallet instruments; and use music and movement as part of
an interdisciplinary approach to language development.
The CD contains Saint-Saënsí Carnival of The Animals, as
well as Prokofievís Peter and The Wolf, and Brittenís The
Young Personís Guide to The Orchestra.
Book, 30 pages.
