Students will experience what it is like to be a silent movie actor and musician. From script writing, acting, and choosing appropriate music, students will be collaborating together to create their own silent movie. In addition they will have the chance to play along with a silent movie. (Improvising, composing, playing a piece they currently know how to play, and/or choosing an appropriate soundtrack).
Students will also learn the history of the film music industry and popular film composers. There will be lots to listen and watch for as they figure out what soundtracks are appropriate to use in certain scenes. They will see what goes on behind the scenes in music and why it plays such a vital role in the movie industry. And so much more!
