Some Music’s tracks
By Cynthia Kim. SEOUL Reuters - South Korean authorities announced a ban on year-end parties and some music lessons on Sunday and said public saunas and some cafes must also close after coronavirus infections surged at their fastest pace since the early days of the pandemic. Authorities reported new infections on Sunday after more than cases were recorded for three days in a row, the Korea Disease Control and Prevention Agency said. What authorities are calling a third wave of infections is spreading at the fastest rate in nearly nine months, driven by outbreaks at military facilities, a sauna, a high school and churches. Prime Minister Chung Sye-kyun said restrictions would be tightened on gatherings and activities seen as prone to virus transmission, especially in the capital Seoul and surrounding urban areas. Saunas and steam-bath rooms with a high risk of mass infection would also be banned as would the teaching of wind musical instruments and singing, he said.
Time to focus on our favorite topic - music! This uptempo swing tune can be used in a variety of ways. It can help you identify and reinforce certain instruments through active participation. It can introduce or further enhance your jazz studies. It can offer an example of a big band jazz ensemble. It can teach or remind students how to swing using an eighth note based triplet pattern. It can be a performance piece with movement. However you use it, you will find this tune easy to learn, easy to sing, and lots of fun to perform. The song names several of these instruments and allows the students to imitate them through call and response.
This rousing, upbeat, participatory invitation to make music should entice budding musicians. Sprightly, cheerful, active, inclusive watercolor illustrations printed on durable stock fill the pages with changing scenes of diverse groups of happy children and adults playing and enjoying music. A solo street musician juggles a banjo, drum, and harmonica for appreciative shoppers. A uniformed marching band struts across the page to a cheering crowd. A string quartet accompanies swirling ballet dancers, while a loud, jiving rock band stirs up jumping fans. A pianist and drummer entertain at a home birthday party. A harpist and flutist play at an elegant ball, a child violinist renders a farewell song at a sad pet funeral, tambourines brighten a school show, and a clarinet tune lulls a child to sleep. A treat to be savored—and a lesson learned—any time of year. The surprised recipient of a box of chocolates agonizes over whether to eat the whole box himself or share with his friends.
