Peace Round - 2nd Grade

posted May 18, 2015, 3:09 PM by Erika Novoselich
The second graders have been learning about rounds. The official definition of a round is as follows: A round is a musical composition in which a minimum of three voices sing exactly the same melody in unison (and may continue repeating it indefinitely), but with each voice beginning at different times so that different parts of the melody coincide in the different voices, but nevertheless fit harmoniously together.

This song is called the "Peace Round". The students sang it in a 4-part round and learned a dance using scarves to go with it.
