Music Makes the Scene (The impact of music on the movies - and on you!). Composed by Cathy Blair. Workbook with DVD. Published by Heritage Music Press (LO.30-2313H).
The 50-minute DVD that is the centerpiece of "Music Makes the Scene" includes ten short (30-45 second) original movie clips, including "Ancient Egypt," "Crystal Effects," "Do You Like to Fly?," "From the Treetops," "Night Vision," "Mad Rush," "March of the Penguins," "Ocean's Island," "Tales of the Tribesmen," and "Episode in Space." Each is shown once without audio, then three more times, each with different music. Students watch and listen to all four versions of the clip while completing guided-listening activities that highlight how each of the different soundtracks affects the reactions to the movie clip. Reproducible worksheets and listening guides are included in this unique product that brings critical listening alive in your classroom. (The DVD works with any standard DVD player or computer equipped with DVD software. ).
