Product Description
David Foster - Canada's most famous music producer!

This series featuring Canadian Musicians is an alternative to the classical "Composer of the Month" activities that have been done to death.

Canada as a country is quite young, so it isn't represented in the classical composers we typically feature. I decided to look specifically at important musicians from the more recent past so I could highlight for my students our own country's many important contributions to music history.

The PDFs included in this package are designed to be used for a bulletin board display that can also provide a jumping off point for instruction. All of the files are standard letter size, some portrait and some landscape. They will print best if you print “without borders” if your printer has this function (but will look fine the other way as well). They are meant to be printed in colour, but will look fine in black and white if you don’t have a colour printer or are going to be photocopying as handouts. Lower resolution jpgs of each poster are also included for your convenience, in case you can’t use PDF (they still look good when printed).

This third installment in my CMoM series includes:

- A title and header (included in one file to print & cut, or leave whole if you prefer)
- Awards (recognition the musician has received)
- Link to character education: Caring (includes examples from artist’s life)
- Facts (brief bio)
- Quote from the artist
- Songs (a list of suggested pieces for listening)
- Vocabulary (four music terms relevant for studying this particular artist)
- Featured Profession: Music Producer

When I use these in my classroom I set up the bulletin board but also tweak my lessons to that particular artist. So when we are studying rhythm, for example, my musical examples will be from the featured artist. I also use that particular musician’s repertoire in our listening station for the month. Rather than just being something to cover the wall, our bulletin board is a reference point and a visual representation of what we are studying. This particular artist is an interesting look into the recording aspect of music, which is a high-interest area for most students in this age group and helps them to make sense of how the popular music they listen to is produced.
