Every week this year, a piece of music will be selected as our featured music of the week. We'll have an opportunity to hear this music several times during the week, as well as learning a little about some of the composers. We announce each week's choice every Monday morning through our Class Twitter account, with a number of clues leading up to the reveal.

We're calling it #RhythmAndClues!

We'll get to see a video clip of the music being performed by an orchestra and see can we identify the different parts of an orchestra, as well as the many instruments being used - as well as enjoying the music, of course! You can keep track of the music that is being highlighted in our class by browsing through the list (which will be updated regularly!) listed by the date the week starts!
