Music Theory at the Wright Home

Lucy has been singing Darth Vader’s theme song so Caleb decided to play Chopin’s Sonata #2, March Funebre, to the kids. The kids were dancing around enjoying the music, and Caleb decided it was a good time to teach some music theory.

Caleb: Leo, why do think the music changes tone like that?
Leo: Some is happy and some is sad.
Caleb: But what do you think is happening at the happy part? Why is it happy? Remember it’s a funeral march.

Leo gets quiet and is obviously thinking. Leo: “Because they get to get all his stuff?”

Well at least the kids are learning something!
