Today we will walking through the Exhibition together listening to each of the pieces and seeing the pictures. We will not listen to the whole piece but as we listen you may want to write down some notes of what you hear on your hand out. Once we have listened to 1-2 minutes of each of the 10 pieces we will do a little "guessing game." And see if you can guess which picture matches which of the 4 songs I play. Enjoy walking through the pictures at the exhibition!
