Rags to Riches: Musical Motif Outcome.

This term, we reviewed Peter and the Wolf by Sergei Prokofiev ( Each time a character appears in the story, a piece of music is played to represent it.

The children then took this concept and have worked hard to compose a motif to represent each character from our featured text - The Egyptian Cinderella. A motif is a recurring musical fragment or succession of notes. Every child  has composed their own motif for a character. They worked individual first to compose their own motif before combining it with other who had chosen the same character. 

Being of a young age, this was not an easy task and many became really nervous when they recorded their piece. However,  I am immensely proud of each and everyone, as they have thrived with the challenge and produced a piece of compelling music. Well done! smiley
