PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A Christmas Music Min-Unit that is both engaging and curriculum-based!

I have always been a bit of a film score buff. Almost ever since I started teaching I have been playing what students call “the soundtrack game” on special days and before holidays at school. Basically, I play themes from various movie scores, and they compete in teams for the most points by trying to guess the movies.

After a few years I realized that I should be able to get something a little more educational out of the activity, especially since they love it so much – and that’s how this mini-unit was born.

This unit focuses on how making specific choices (tone colour, melody, dynamics, etc) within a composition can evoke specific feelings within a listener. “What makes Christmas music SOUND like Christmas?” is the question we’re trying to answer – and what better way to do it than through the scores of popular Christmas films?

This mini-unit is written for junior grades and therefore it assumes that the students already have a working knowledge of timbre, melody, tempo, dynamics, and articulation. If your students are a little rusty on these terms, it serves as a great opportunity for some review.
