Expression in Music

Music can help people express themselves and connect to their emotions in different ways. Watch the video below to listen to the third movement of Mozart's Gran Partita. The video prompts us to think about how music can move us, and how it allows us to express ourselves if we are aware of how to listen.


After watching the video, download this MP3 to listen to just the audio from Mozart's beautiful piece of music.


Now try to answer these 3 questions:

  1. What do you think Mozart was trying to express in the music you heard?

  2. How does Mozart's music make you feel?

  3. What do you want to express through music?


Next, visit this page on Classical MPR's website to view a short lesson for ages 5-10 and a curriculum guide for older students that both relate to the video.
