Hello music appreciators!
For your blog this week, you will listen to the three versions of "Yesterday" that are on the right.
As you listen, think about how the interpretations and arrangements are similar and how they are different.
In paragraph one, write about specific ways (instruments, dynamics, tempo, mood, etc.) that the three versions are similar and different.
In paragraph two, explain which version you like the best, and explain WHY you like it the best. Be specific in your reasoning of why you prefer one version over the rest.
20 pts. When referring to the different examples, the student uses the names of the musicians (not video 1, 2 3)
