Peter Tchaikovsky

The Musician of the Month for December is Peter Tchaikovsky.  He was born and lived in Russia from 1840 to 1893.  He had a very sad life.  But, he wrote some amazing music! 
 Some of his best loved music is The Nutcracker Ballet!  Last week we listened to and did a Candy Cane dance to song March.  This week we are exploring the form of the Russian dance Trepak from the Nutcracker and doing an awesome parachute activity!! 
Next week we will watch the ballet!  Here is a preview of the one that we will be watching:
