Follow Mr. Maraca through his latest journey, Italy! Mr. Maraca travels to different countries around the world on vacation and brings back slideshows of his travels to the general music classroom. In his slideshows the students learn about the similarities and differences between the United States and the places he visits, some different traditions or holidays of those places, and (the best part!) the music of those countries!
In this particular presentation Mr. Maraca is in Italy! The students will have a chance to learn about Italian instruments, such as the accordion. They also learn about the most popular type of music, opera, and how even Bugs Bunny gets into the opera scene, via Rossini's Barber of Seville.
