Lately in music we have been learning about ARTICULATION, and STACCATO and LEGATO sounds! STACCATO sounds are quick and jumpy, and LEGATO sounds are smoother. Articulation helps to tell us musicians to play notes STACCATO or LEGATO! In Grade 2, we use 'dots' to show notes that should be played STACCATO, and 'dashes' to show notes that should be played LEGATO! Here are some songs that use STACCATO and LEGATO sounds. Listen and move to the different sounds at home!
