Kids Commute: Recycling week!
Franz Schubert, J. S. Bach, Clara Schumann, G. F. Handel and Ludwig van Beethoven recycled their own music by reusing pieces they had already written!
We all know that recycling things like cans, bottles and cardboard is a good thing to do for the environment.
But it turns out that lots of composers recycled, too - they recycled their own music.
Each day, we'll learn about how a different composer reused a piece of music that they had already written.
Sometimes they changed it a lot, and sometimes they hardly changed it at all!
We'll also have a brand new recycling-themed quizlet for you!
