America is just a baby compared to other countries, and those other countries have thousands of years of their own music developing their own unique, distinct, and symbolic sound that reflects their country.

In this lesson, students learn about how Aaron Copland came along and gave America its own unique, distinct, and symbolic American sound that we all love and grew up with.

As students learn about how Aaron Copland used Intervals to represent the wide open fields, Brass & Percussion to reflect Americas Power, and Old American Folk Songs from back in Lincolns day to create the American sound, students will surely fall in love with his music and recognize his prominent influence in the music we hear today.

Students hear these Techniques Copland used for themselves in this lesson plan as they will listen to Hoedown, Fanfare for the Common Man, and Lincoln Portrait as the lesson plan goes along.

At the end of this lesson, students will listen to the Gettysburg Addresswhich is recited in the piece Lincoln Portrait by Copland. As students complete the listening exercise, they then engage in the following activity:

Activity:
Students will choose an American Hero, Icon, or Leader of their choice. They will then search and find a speech by that person that they find inspirational and recite it to the class while the music Lincoln Portrait is playing (most of the song is just instrumental music). I personally chose to have students just recite it at their desk, but you can instruct them to stand in front of the class if you choose to do so, just edit the last slide in the presentation if that floats your boat.

Enjoy!
