Arioso is step four in the eight-part music readiness curriculum developed by Dr. John Feierabend titled, First Steps in Music for Preschool and Beyond. Ariosos are spontaneous or improvised songs created by students. Ariosos develop original musical thinking in students. They can be inspired by pictures, stories, and more. In this lesson, these 14 scenes from “Candy Land” to “Musical Road” assist the student in creating an original song.
