Teaching ideas & activities

With older children you can listen to the first movement of Brahms’ Symphony No. 2 in D major, where the composer uses variations on the melody, and try to recognize them through the composition.

For younger ones, just sing to them (or listen to the mp3 we offer to you) if you want to make them relax or sleep, as it is no coincidence that this tune is one of the most famous lullabies in the world.
