It’s day two of “Guitar Week” on Kids Commute from Interlochen Public Radio. All week long, we’re celebrating one of the most popular instruments of all time with special guest, Matthew Cochran. Matt is instructor of guitar at Interlochen Center for the Arts, and an all-around great guy.
Today’s musical selection was composed by Johann Sebastian Bach. We learn what a bouree is, and we get a great demonstration of counterpoint, which means “voice against voice”. All of this plus a hint to help you figure out the answer to this week’s quizlet.
