Learning About the Piano

In Term 1 the class learned about Beethoven and the piano.
They learned that Beethoven was a composer, 
and that he persevered even though he faced many challenges in his life.  
From when he was a small child, Beethoven practised playing the piano for many hours of the day, 
and although he went deaf at age 27 he continued to write and perform great music.

While one of our students played a short tune, 
the class took a look inside an upright piano to see how the sound was made.

Do you learn a musical instrument?
What instrument do you most like to listen to?
