After viewing a video/s, discuss how the Power of Music evokes emotions by
using Dynamics, Tempo and Tone Colors in multiple ways.

Viewing Options:
1. Show video or a clip of a video without sound. Ask your students to describe the emotion/s.
2. Show the video now with the sound. Ask your students to describe the emotion/s.
3. Ask your students if they think the music enhanced the emotion for the audience to experience what was being portrayed on screen or there was no difference.
4. If they answered yes, the music enhanced, ask them to explain using musical terms the musical effects that helped the emotions along for the audience to experience. Be as specific as possible.

Under A Minute: RHYTHM Bounce

24 Solo Plastic Cups
Draw on outside of cups: 
8 Cups with Quarter Notes
8 Cups with Double Eighth Notes
8 Cups with Quarter Rests
Teacher Created 1 measure Rhythm Patterns, Groups of 2, 3 or 4 Beats
2 Tables
Ping Pong Balls

* Place all the Rhythm Cups on 1 table ( I call this the Rhythm Cup Holding Table)
* Divide class into 2 or 3 teams
* 2 students per team compete at same time
* Teacher places his/her chosen Rhythm Pattern in a place for the entire class to see
* When time starts, Student 1 goes to the Rhythm Cup holding table, grabs the Rhythm cups that are  in the teachers Rhythm Pattern.
* Student 1 then takes these cups to the playing table and sets up the Rhythm Cups to match the teacher chosen pattern in the same order, then stands behind the playing table.
* Student 2, standing about 3 feet from the table, bounces the ping pong balls, one at a time, off the table or off the floor, into each cup, in Rhythmic order. If the ball bounces out of order or knocks a cup over Student 1 resets the cup.
* The first team to complete the ball bounce in order before 59 seconds is up, wins the points.

* 2 measure patterns (double the number of cups)
* Add Half Notes, Dotted Half Notes, Whole Notes, Half Rests, Whole Rests
* School wide competition: When you divide classes, assign each team a color, (use school colors or your country's colors) example: Red, White, Blue... each color represented in each class. After all the classes have played, tally up and announce the winner!
