A Day of Duets

2 by 3 or 4

The Spring recital offered a performance of duets with students joining together to play works by Mozart, Pleyel, Dr. “Bugs” Bower and others.

We learned about the beat or pulse of a song and how to tell the difference between music with a duple feel (in 2 or 4) or a triple feel (in 3).
