Students begin getting their mind set on the theme of the day, and discuss what technology would go into making a music video that they are watching.
Students will be taken through the advancements of technology over the years and how it has revolutionized music. It will also talk a little bit about how it has hurt the life of a musician in the process.
A project that includes students to come up with their own musical/technology invention is assigned. Students can get in groups and design their own product that integrates technology into a musical instrument or device that would improve/enhance the musical experiences we have today.
I personally did this project with my 7th graders. After they were done, I had the groups compete against each other as to who could get the most sales from the 6th graders. Not using real money, you can hand out fake money to sixth graders and also do a "Marketing in Music" activity after the project is finished. Great way to connect the school, and have them taking part in your activities outside the classroom.
