Music that Mimics Stormy Weather

Music that Mimics Stormy Weather


Listen to three classical music pieces from Vivaldi, Grofe, and Beethoven that demonstrate how musical instruments can be used to imitate rain, thunder, rising winds, lightning, and other characteristics of storms. This is an excellent listening activity for exploring storm-inspired music and musical moods.
