Kids React to Contemporary Music| Episode 28

What is music? How should it make us feel? What should music written today sound like? These are the questions contemporary composers are trying to answer…and so are Rebecca and Zara. This week they learn that music can sound like an epic movie scene or like an animal jumping on the piano. They also discuss if singers need a melody and if rubber ducks can be musical instruments.
