Music is made up of sounds with different pitches that create melodies. In this module, your child will play with low- and high-pitched sounds.                                                                                                                                                                                                          Discover music excerpts played by:
the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal, harpist Valérie Milot as well as Yannick Nézet-Séguin and Alain Trudel (Atma Classique) and you will hear excerpts of musical works such as the Symphony No. 9 by Ludwig van Beethoven, Clair de Lune by Debussy and Rhapsody in Blue by Gershwin.
