Spring

Ms. Manchester's class learned that a piece of music played by one person is called a solo, like the piano solo in this movement piece. The song begins with one student waking everyone from their winter slumber. Each child chose their own way and time to grow into a tree. Students took turns leading mirror movements that expressed how the music made them feel in the moment. The movements were not rehearsed, but rather improvised and changed each time we repeated the activity.
