Today’s episode of Busy Kids Love Music explores the symphony, which is a word that you might hear a lot but aren’t exactly sure what it means. Not only will I tell you what it means, but we’ll also learn…

  • How many musicians play in a symphony orchestra
  • Who is considered the Father of the Symphony
  • All about the symphonic form

Today’s episode is going to prepare you for Episode 12, where we’ll be listening to and discussing Beethoven’s nine symphonies.
