Gustav Holst was born on 21 September 1874 in Cheltenham, England.
The Children are learning to compose music familiar to Gustav's most famous piece. The Planets, his most famous being Mars -The bringer of War.
This week a small group of children studied Mercury- The winged messenger, played on two pianos. Our children used xylophones for their pieces. Hope you enjoy.
We listened to Gustav Holst piece 'The Planet'. We related his music to our emotion and the mood. We wrote how the music made us feel, any instruments we heard and drew a symbol to represent the music.
