Music Makes the Scene
The impact of music on the movies...and on you!
By Cathy Blair
Book and DVD
40 pages and 50-min. DVD
For grades 5 - 8
The 50-minute DVD that is the centerpiece of this book includes 10 short (30-45 second) original movie clips. Each is shown once without audio, then 3 more times, each time with different music. Students watch and listen to all 4 versions of the clip while completing guided-listening activities that highlight how each of the different soundtracks affects the reactions to the movie clip.
There are 2 reproducible worksheets for each film-clip group. One requires solid knowledge of tempo and dynamic terminology and the ability to identify instruments by sound. It also requires creative thinking and writing from the students. The other worksheet is a series of multiple-choice questions. These worksheets and listening guides bring critical listening alive in your classroom.
