Today you have a choice: compare movie music, be inspired or sing a song.

Compare Music - Listen to these movie compositions and choose your favorite based on: pitch (high or low), pulse (fast or slow), dynamics (loud or soft), rhythm (does it leave you whistling the tune) and timbre (tone-type of sound opera vs pop, trumpet vs violin) 

Pick 3 and compare.

John Williams - Harry Potter - Hedwig's theme

John Williams - Jurrasic Park

John Williams - Star Wars Imperial March

Hans Zimmer - Pirate of the Caribbean

Hans ZImmer - Superman

Ennio Morricone- The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

Lalo Schifrin - Mission Impossible

Brian Tyler - Iron Man 3

Brian Tyler - Can You Dig It

Or maybe you will find another movie theme tune from these composers which you like.


Be inspired by musical creativity

Sing a Song

Here’s another fun song to sing- You’re Welcome from Moana 

Ok, ok, I see what's happening here 
You're face to face with greatness, and it's strange 
You don't even know how you feel 
It's adorable! 
Well, it's nice to see that humans never change 

Open your eyes, let's begin 
Yes, it's really me, it's Maui: breathe it in! 

I know it's a lot: the hair, the bod! 
When you're staring at a demi-god 

What can I say except you're welcome 
For the tides, the sun, the sky 
Hey, it's okay, it's okay 
You're welcome 
I'm just an ordinary demi-guy 

What has two thumbs that pulled up the sky 
When you were waddling yay high 
This guy! 

When the nights got cold 
Who stole you fire from down below 
You're lookin' at him, yo 

Oh, also I lassoed the sun 
You're welcome! 
To stretch the days and bring you fun 

Also I harnessed the breeze 
You're welcome! 
To fill your sails and shake your trees 

So what can I say except you're welcome 
For the islands I pulled from the sea 
There's no need to pray, it's okay 
You're welcome! 
Ha, I guess it's just my way of being me 
You're welcome! 
You're welcome! 

Well, come to think of it 
Kid, honestly I can go on and on 
I can explain every natural phenomenon 
The tide, the grass, the ground, oh 
That was Maui just messing around 

I killed an eel 
I buried its guts 
Sprouted a tree, now you got coconuts 
What's the lesson? 
What is the take-away? 
Don't mess with Maui when he's on the break-away 

And the tapestry here on my skin 
Is a map of the victories I win 
Look where I've been 
I make everything happen 
Look at that mini-Maui just tippity-tappin' 

Well, anyway let me say you're welcome 
For the wonderful world you know 
Hey, it's okay, it's okay 
You're welcome! 
Well, come to think of it, I gotta go 

Hey, it's your day to say you're welcome 
'Cause I'm gonna need that boat 
I'm sailing away, away 
You're welcome! 
'Cause Maui can do anything but float 

You're welcome! 
You're welcome! 
And thank you!
