SoundGarden: Sound & Music Explorations
The SoundGarden has been designed to complement the Kitchen's teacher-oriented resources and the Resource Room's support and reference materials.
As you enter the SoundGarden you discover five paths that lead in and out. There is a gentle breeze blowing from the west, you can hear the lazy clang of wind chimes (25") that hang on a magnificent old oak tree, there's a pond with some ducks – soft ripples spread out as they glide across its surface, a beautiful bench with cryptic markings on it that remind you of a gothic courtyard, and a young lady named Euterpe (a Muse!) – dressed in purple – sitting on the bench softly playing her cello (60").
Further down the first path, you can see Polyhymnia, or Poly for short (another Muse!). She seems to be composing a song for some sort of religious service. If you listen carefully, you may hear her hum a few bars (30").
The SoundGarden is Full of Online Activities!
Here you can explore a variety of ideas about sound and music! You can use the SoundGarden to discover things on your own, or you can visit the Kitchen to find a unit a study that will organize your investigations, and then return here.
