Kazakhstan is a multinational state. All peoples on its territory live in peace and harmony. During the music lessons we get acquainted with the culture and traditions of all nationalities living in our country. Recently, we studied the musical traditions of the Kazakh people. At the music lessons we got acquainted with the work of Kurmangazy, listened to his kui, and then his impressions of his music, emotions expressed in the drawings. At the end of the lesson, everyone commented on his drawing, which were discussed together, and an interesting picture turned out: almost everyone drew what the composer wanted to convey in his music. That's great! So, we started to understand and feel the music!
