Setting the scene
“Today, we’re going to help the sea lions install their nightlight to help them get a good night’s sleep.”
To think about their personal tastes and preferences, the diversity of each person’s interests, and respect for difference : “What kind of music do you think the sea lions like to help them go off to sleep? Consonant or dissonant music?” “Is it music that sounds odd to your ears?”
Teach them Brahms’ Lullaby (“Lullaby and good night…”) and listen to a version for string orchestra:
Johannes Brahms, Wiegenlied Op. 49, No. 4, performed by Angèle Dubeau & La Pietà
