Form in music is like patterns. In a piece of music, there are many phrases. We can label each phrase as "ABCD" if the four phrases are different. But, what happens when a phrase is repeated? Let's say a phrase is repeated after a different section; for example, the A (capital letter) phrase is repeated after the B phrase. The form of the music is ABA.
In Spring by Vivaldi, the sun section is named as A. Every time a new section comes in; we will name it with a different alphabet. Can you figure out the form of the music by dragging
the pictures to the squares?
*Teachers, if each A section is a little bit different, for this project, we will let the young students assume the sun music is the A.
