MUSIC + STORY: FILM SCORES AND MORE
CLASS MIN-MAX: 5-15
CLASS DAY(S): M-F
CLASS TIME: 10A-12P MST / 11A-1P CST
CLASS DATES: JUNE 15-19
INSTRUCTOR: JENNIFER FISCHER
CLASS MATERIALS/NEEDS: Pencil, paper, colored pencils/crayons or markers. We will also be creating our own instruments or utilizing instruments students might have on hand. Instruments can be completely created using loose parts, such as empty containers (soup cans, cartons, lids, pebbles, other items found in nature). Strong tape (such as duct tape) is helpful, but not required.
Students will explore the power of music to either tell a story or amplify a story that is already being told. We will examine the use of music in films and compare the difference between a film score, film soundtrack and source music in a movie. We will also observe how changing the music in a scene or short film can change the meaning or feeling of the scene or film. Students will gain an understanding of how composers select different instruments to reflect the story they want a song to tell and compare and contrast narrative orchestral pieces with abstract jazz work. Ultimately, the students will tell their own story through music using instruments made from recycled materials, body percussion or an instrument or instruments they may also have at home.
