Estes son 3 fragmentos dun documental emitido pola TVE-2 sobre o compositor:
Do you want to explore biographies of professional orchestra musicians? Perhaps the conductor’s biography?
Thanks to Canada’s National Arts Centre orchestra (NAC), you can read some biographies and watch musician’s interviews. You can also read the transcriptions of the interviews, in case you need some help with English 😉
These three videos are really interesting for you to learn accidentals and what a chromatic scale is, in English and also in Spanish.
In this video you can listen to different examples of beats and rhythmic patterns.
The wheel is marked with different colored dots representing beats. In this case, green dots are used for main beats, orange dots for off beats, and white dots for secondary beats. Thus, John Varney uses the wheel method to take us on a rhythmic journey around the world, tracing styles like quechua, bomba, choro, tango, and cumbia — just to name a few.
Watch the video on below, see the entire lesson and take the Rhythm quiz on TedEd’s website.

In this fantastic website, LittleKidsRock, you can find several Video lessons, very useful to learn the basics about the main Rock instruments. Take a look at some lessons clicking on this picture:
Then you could play the Beat Box game:
Or perhaps you prefer to Build a Beat:
There are also a lot of useful resources for Music teachers, like these Drum lessons:
And getting back to the Orchestral Instruments bilingual resources, I share with you these fantastic videos from Classical MPR.
With the help of this eccentric, outdated computer TOMMIS, the videos explain which instruments belong to each of the orchestra’s four families: strings, winds, percussion, and brass.
