Tell the story to your students:
Franz Joseph Haydn was a composer who lived almost 300 years ago in
Austria. He worked for a prince and lived in a castle. His job was to write
beautiful music for the prince and his guests. The prince would have big dinners
for his guests, and after dinner there would be a concert.
Sometimes the guests ate so much at dinner that they got sleepy during the concert. Mr. Haydn was
disappointed when he saw someone sleeping while his beautiful music was
playing. He thought they didn’t like his music. He decided to write a piece of
music that would surprise the audience.
Pretend that you are in the audience at Mr. Haydn’s concert.
Pretend to sleep during the quiet parts. If you hear a
surprise, wake up! How did Mr. Haydn surprise his audience?
Sing along with the kids. Copy their movements.
Another option is to play an instrument with the song.
