Music Fun Facts:
Provide children with an opportunity to listen to early swing music and explain that the main melody in this type of music is often performed by the clarinet. You may want to listen to music performed by the clarinetist Benny Goodman (The King of Swing) and his band. You may also want to teach children some basic swing dance moves. Early swing music was popular in in the 1920s to the 1940s, so you may want to talk about American history of that era, including the Roaring Twenties, which were followed by the Great Depression.
