BPO French Hornist Visits 4th Grade Music Class

Today Buffalo Philharmonic French hornist, Sheryl Hadeka visited our 4th grade classes during music. Following the structure of stories, Sheryl explored how music can make its own narrative. Students were guided to create their own unique story by listening to music and choosing melodies for a beginning, middle, and end. Some of the melodies in this presentation were familiar to the students- espcially the Harry Potter and Superman theme. This was a great way to allow students to connect with the mood and character of each musical piece played and decide where their own personal tale would go!
