Music Study for Halloween - In The Hall of the Mountain King

This simple Classical music study for Halloween is perfect for the elementary and middle school set. 

In The Hall of the Mountain King, written by Edvard Grieg, is full of changing dynamics, a repeated theme, and rich instruments. 

This is one of those "mainstream" pieces of music that lots of people have heard, but few know the background of the piece. It comes from the larger work, "Peer Gynt" suite. 

If you study composers with your children, you know that Edvard Grieg was a Scandinavian composer whose music reflected his love for his country. He wrote music in the Romantic Era.
