|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Music and Feelings
A musical invitation to you and your child...to explore the moods of music with Mister Rogers as your guide. In this video visit, he celebrates the many ways music touches our lives.
There's a visit with master cellist Yo Yo Ma who reflects on the importance of music in his childhood. Ella Jenkins also stops by to show Mister Rogers the clapping games she learned as a child. There are many varieties of music, Mister Rogers emphasizes, and he demonstrates one way using bottles filled with water. In addition: an inside look at how people manufacture bass violins.
There's dissonance in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe: King Friday XIII declares there will be a festival of bass violins, but he's the only Neighbor who knows how to play one. Thanks to Lady Aberlin, who finds the courage to tell the King how left out the Neighbors feel, the festival proceeds in surprising and ingenious ways. The best contributions, the Neighbors learn, are the unique gifts that make each Neighbor different.
Talking about feelings can be hard, Mister Rogers agrees, but letting the people who love us know how we feel is an important part of growing.
MISTER ROGERS: MUSIC AND FEELINGS can be a way to talk about music and feelings in your family.
