Lesson Plan of the Week

This week, we start our 2015 Young People's Concerts! We'll listen to a concerto being played by Ben Mader, one of our Young Artists Concerto Competition winners, who will perform on our February 5th YPC. In this lesson, students will listen to the first movement of Shostakovich’s Piano Concerto No. 2 and identify and describe the musical elements that hold the piece together.
