Clip to ScrapBook #2

a book titled Can You Hear It?. I bought it from Barnes and Noble. It is filled with copies of famous art including sculpture as well as paintings. The book includes a CD. The author selected a classical tune to symbolize each piece of art. I play the music for my students and have them draw what they think might be going on. We first discuss how music for movies is written to help set the tone of the plot. The students listen carefully and have to visualize. We discuss their various ideas and share drawings and then look at the matching art in the book and discuss some more. They love this activity!
