Dynamics mean how loud or soft the music is. In music, these dynamics have special names. We have learned four so far in Grade Two. Here they are below! Use them as you listen to the song below, paying close attention to the dynamic changes.
Forte means loudly Piano means softly Crescendo means getting louder Decrescendo means getting softer
Listen to "four seasons" by Antonio Vivaldi for extra practice on identifying dynamics in music.
