Discovering the Lost Ark of Possibilities: Bringing Visibility to the Invisible Art Form of Film Music in Your Music Classroom
Keown, Daniel J.
Music Educators Journal, v101 n4 p70-76 Jun 2015
Conventional music learning in schools could benefit from the study of the music from films, television, and video games. This article offers practical applications for including film music as an outlet for analysis, an interdisciplinary compositional art form, a viable teaching tool, and an authentic performance/production experience. Music educators in both performance-based and non-performance-based settings will learn ways film music can serve as a tool for fostering rigorous critical thinking skills via analysis, broadening creativity through composition and production experiences, and offering a platform for artistic reflection. A list of print and online resources devoted to film music is included.
