In today’s episode of Busy Kids Love Music, we’re learning about all things PIZZICATO!

Isn’t that a fun word to say? It’s fun to listen to – and fun to play as well. You’re going to hear lots of examples of what it means to play with the pizzicato technique in our episode. We’ll listen to how different composers used pizzicato to set a certain mood, indicate weather or just get a little silly.
