FORM: Eight measures make
up a
musical
period,
usually divided
into
two
four-measure
phrases.
The
first
is
called
the
"antecedent
phrase"
and the
second
is
called
the
"consequent
phrase".
It is
very natural
for a
period
to be
divided
into
two
equal
parts,
as in the
follow-

Children
especially
have
a
need
and
ability
to
express
music with
dynamics.
With
the
teacher's help, this aspect
of
a
student's
performance can
easily
be
encouraged.
