Grade four
Number of pupils : 24
Age range : ten
Time : two lessons of sixty minutes
Material : CD-rom or audio cassette,
cassette recorder, exercise book, white
paper and crayons
AIMS
• To stimulate pupils’ imagination
• To understand the language of music
• To draw to music
Procedure
• The music that has been chosen for the
project is “Pictures at an exhibition” by
Modest Mussorgski, a Russian composer.
• This music was created by M.M. while he
was thinking about an exhibition by his
friend Viktor Hartman: there are a lot of
different pieces and each represents a
painting.
• There is “ the old castle”
which is very sad
“ the chicks ballet” :
happy and light;
• “tuileries”, where the composer describes
children’s games;
“catacombae, sepulchrum romanum”,slow
and heavy…
and others.
Feelings are so well described,
so clear in this music that the
teacher doesn’t have to say
anything
Pupils hear one “painting”
at a time
(in this moment silence is
very important)
At the end of each piece of
music the pupils write down
their emotions, feelings and
images created by the music
in their inner eye.
In the first lesson pupils can hear 4 or 5
pieces more than once if necessary
In the second lesson they tell
their class about what they
have written.
Of course, there will be a lot
of different feelings and
images, but it is very unlikely
that one child can write
“happiness” and another one
“ sadness”
Then they can draw something which represents
their feelings
Only at the end of all the work the
teacher will tell them the composer’s
aim and will discuss it.
Probably the “ exhibition” will be very
different from that by V. Artmann, but
presumably the feelings will be the same
