Create a video using a piece of music as a soundscape.
This was created in association with an Oxfordshire school. Students start with the video and source appropriate music for it.
Tell a story to illustrate the music.
Use instrumental music rather than vocal music so the emotion comes from the sound rather than the lyrics.
John, from Oxford, suggests the following: "We're looking at music which suggests the seasons. I'm getting the students to create or score movies based on the themes of spring, summer, autumn and winter."
For teachers: benefits to students
This helps students understand the relationship between sound and vision.
This is an easy way to get students to engage with a piece of music.
Suitable for solo work
