Program Description
This program is an educational unit consisting of four lessons (2 pre-videoconference, 1 videoconference and 1 post-videoconference) designed to immerse students in the world of music. Through creative hands-on activities, the use of critical thinking skills and research, students learn about the instrument families and develop an understanding of the various sound qualities that instruments make prior to the videoconference. Through guided instruction, students then apply the knowledge they have gained by constructing their own musical instruments, which they present to a Manhattan School of Music teaching artist during the videoconference lesson. This culminates in a spirited interactive exchange in which the teaching artist transforms students own motivic ideas into improvisatory compositions.

Students develop an understanding of the basic building blocks of music, melody and motive throughout the videoconference lesson, which is the centerpiece of the unit. Guided by the teaching artist, students learn how instrumental sounds are fashioned into musical compositions, generating skills to examine the components of themes in music. These concepts are dynamically illustrated through live performance and with the aid of pre-recorded video musical examples performed by talented Manhattan School of Music students. Your students come away from the videoconference as more discerning listeners, with a heightened appreciation and awareness of how music is made, and facing the challenge of creating melodies of their own during the post-videoconference lesson.
Program Format
Students will be immersed in the world of music through creative hands-on activities; research; guided instruction; and live performance. This program is a four-part unit that consists of 2 pre-videoconference lessons, one videoconference program and one post-videoconference lesson.
Objectives
The participant will:
- Become familiar with the different instrument families and the characteristics of individual instruments that belong to them.
- synthesize information to create her/his own instrument that produces sounds similar to those of real instruments.
- share the home-made musical instrument with the Manhattan School teaching artist, who helps explain to them (through live performance and with the aid of pre-recorded musical examples) how the sounds of instruments are transformed into music.
- acquire heightened analytical and aural skills that will enable and inspire them to develop a deep appreciation, understanding and awareness of how music is made.
- engage in dialogue with the Manhattan School teaching artist to "develop" her/his own musical motives and ideas on the home-made instrument.
