How did the beauty of nature inspire Beethoven in writing his 6th Symphony? What is Acoustic Ecology and Sound Density? Have you ever been on a Soundwalk? Is there music in the world around us? We have so much to learn from nature and the environment, especially during this time when outdoor learning is an encouraged and valuable tool.
This video introduces a set of lessons available to subscribers of TheConcertHall.ca.
The Listening to Our World module is for grades 3-6.
