Dessin animé, pure fantaisie humoristique et amusante qui répond aux seules règles du bon goût. On ne peut voir musiciens plus avertis que ce quatuor de chats qui exécute, avec force glissando, inflexion, attaque et vibrato, une musique de jazz syncopé. L'animation au service de la musique !

Ages 6 to 11

Arts Education - Music

Have students only listen to the music of this clip before you let them see it. Ask them which instruments they heard and record their answers on the board. After the viewing, bring students' attention to the shapes/patterns in the clip. Students will once again listen to the music only and draw a collage where shapes and/or instruments are included. Upper grades can create their collage on the computer and add movement of their images as seen in the clip. Listen to other jazz pieces and ask the class how this type of music compares to the music of their choice.
