19th & 20th Century Composers: Exoticism

VH1 Music Studio has put out another great lesson that incorporates analysis, compare/contrast, and musical terminology. Kids will listen to the song "Habanera" considering the use of specific instruments in evoking a sense of location. They then compare that to the use of Indian instruments in several of the Beatle's pieces. They then compose a simple piece using the concept of Exoticism discussed earlier.

It is so helpful to have so many resources on one website. Sources that used to take hours of hunting on line now take little time to locate. In the event of a change of plans or if I need sub plans for the day, my work is done.
