Learn about form with this activity!

Listen to this song from the nutcracker. Pay attention to the dynamics, how high and low, and the tempo, how fast or slow, and how they change how the dancer moves. Were the dynamics the same the whole time? Did they change? Why would the composer make the music change tempo and dynamics? How did the song make you feel? Talk with your friends or family about the music!
