MAGICAL MOZART & MACAROONS STUDY GUIDE

Greetings from The Broad Stage! Dear Educators, We are excited to continue our partnership with The Colburn School Conservatory of Music to present Magical Mozart & Macaroons! This season, five of Colburn’s talented young musicians – a violinist, violist, two double bassists and a flautist – will be joining us on stage for this imaginative journey into the world of Mozart’s music.

13 / 14 SEASON

In preparation for the performance, we ask that you take a few minutes to look through this study guide. It contains teaching resources for you to use in your classroom and each lesson is based on California Core and VAPA State Standards. Our hope is to support your efforts not only in preparing students for this particular program, but in integrating the arts into other aspects of your students’ day to day learning process. Thank you for taking this journey with us and for your continued dedication to your students’ academic and artistic development. We’ll see you at Magical Mozart &Macaroons! Sincerely, Alisa De Los Santos Education & Outreach Coordinator Delossantos_Alisa@smc.edu

Music is everywhere in today’s world, just like it was in Mozart’s time. Although the popular music of the time sounded very different, it can still make us want to dance, sing, imagine new places and feel different emotions. Throughout this musical journey, you and your students will be invited to activate your imaginations and join the musicians in an adventure exploring the beat, tempo, melody, variations and dynamics of a few of Mozart’s many well known creations.

Worksheet 4: My Concert Review


LESSON 1

Instruments Speak! (45 minutes) Grade Levels 2-5 Materials: Worksheet 1: Instrument Families, Worksheet 2: An Instrument Conversation Goals: 1) Students will be introduced to the instrument families, instruments, and their “voices.� 2) Students will be introduced to the different musical ensembles they will hear at the performance. 3) Students will learn that themes/statements from each instrument are related to the overall musical dialogue.

PART 1 Engagement Ask students to share how many people are in their family. Explain that instruments have families just like we do! Some are closely related, while others are more like distant relatives. Ask students who they most closely resemble in their family? Explain that the string family is made up of instruments that resemble each other: the bass, cello, viola, and violin. Notice how each instrument in the string family looks similar and different. Ask students to point out the similarities and differences. Introduce the woodwind family and tell students that they will be hearing some of the woodwind family during the concert. There will be music for the bassoon and the flute in the performance. Mozart also composed for the oboe and the clarinet. Explain that the students will be hearing several different pieces during the performance and the instruments featured are violin, viola, two double basses and a flute. Find those instruments and their families on the Instrument Families worksheet. Explain that sometimes during the performance, the instruments will play in groups and sometimes alone. Introduce the concept of a quintet, quartet, trio, duet/duo, and solo by relating it to a family gathering. Think about a time when your whole family talks together (ex. telling about your day at the dinner table). Would your family be considered a quartet, trio, duo, or other?

13 / 14 SEASON

Distribute Worksheet 1: Instrument Families to students.


LESSON 1

PART 2 Activity Discuss the different ways that we use our voices when we talk or sing (ie. Loudly, softly, quickly, slowly, etc). Distribute Worksheet 2: An Instrument Conversation and read the introduction together as a class. Pair students up and have them sing the conversation outlined in the worksheet, reminding them to be creative in the ways that they use their voices.

PART 3 Reflection

This worksheet and activity can be completed in pairs or as an entire class, depending on students’ grade level and abilities.

Lead a group discussion about how the singing conversations went in groups. If the activity was completed as a large group, ask students for observations about the participants singing, how they used their voices, etc. Ask students the following:

• Was each person clearly heard? • Were there times that the conversation seemed to flow? • How might the music you will hear sound like a conversation of instruments? • How can instruments “talk” without using words?

THEBROADSTAGE.COM/ARTSED

13 / 14 SEASON

Once each pair has sung through the conversation, ask for volunteers to recreate their conversation for the class.


LESSON 2

The Man Behind the Music (45 minutes) Grade Levels 2-5 Materials: Worksheet 3: All About Mozart, colored pencils or crayons Goals: 1) Students will learn about Mozart’s life and work. 2) Students will learn about musical forms.

PART 1 Engagement Distribute Worksheet 3: All About Mozart to students. Guide students through the biography of Mozart or have the students read it on their own. Complete Worksheet 3 by having students illustrate the part of Mozart’s life that they find most interesting.

13 / 14 SEASON

Review the vocabulary words (compose, symphony, concerto, string quartet, opera) outlined on Worksheet 3.

PART 2 Activity Explain that Mozart composed his music so that the sounds would paint pictures in our minds. Using different sounds, composers can create a visual scene! We are going to “paint” a picture with sound. Warm up by singing “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” together: “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, How I Wonder What You Are Up Above The World So High, Like A Diamond In The Sky Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, How I Wonder What You Are” Brainstorm sounds that can be made with the body (ie. Snaps, claps, clicks, whistles) that might call to mind the words and ideas expressed in “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star”. Demonstrate using sounds or body-percussion to replace words or phrases (ie. Snapping instead of saying “Twinkle twinkle”, etc.) Group students into small groups of 3-6. Challenge each group to come up with a different body-percussion sound to replace the words. Remind students that the sounds should relate to the scene (night, stars, shiny, etc.) Invite each group of students to take turns performing their compositions for one another.

This worksheet and activity can be completed in pairs or as an entire class, depending on students’ grade level and abilities.

THEBROADSTAGE.COM/ARTSED

Ask students if there was anything surprising in the biography. What other things would they like to know about Mozart’s life?


LESSON 3

MadLib Concert Review (30 minutes) Grade Levels 2-5 Materials: Worksheet 4: My Concert Review, colored pencil or crayons Goals: 1) Students will evaluate the performance.

PART 1 Engagement Ask students about their impressions of the concert.

13 / 14 SEASON

Ask students to share the following in partners or as a group: What emotion(s) did the music make you feel? Where did you travel to in your imagination? What about the music made you think of those feelings/those places?

PART 2 Activity Distribute Worksheet 4: My Concert Review. Direct students to complete the worksheet on their own or in pairs. (Note: For younger students, the worksheet can be completed as a group activity with teacher direction.)

Take it Further! Imagine that you are a musician in a band and your band leader needs some new instruments: A woodwind instrument that sounds like the winter wind A brass instrument that sounds like a surprised shout A percussion instrument that sounds like an elephant walking A string instrument that sounds like a girl singing Pick one (or more) of the ideas above and create an instrument that fits the description. Tell us it’s name, what it looks like and what kinds of sounds it make. (Don’t forget – most instruments look and sound like the others in their instrument families!)

WORKSHEET 3

Compose: to write or create a work of music

All About Mozart

Symphony: a long piece of music for a large band or orchestra

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was one of the world’s most important composers. He was born in Austria on January 27th, 1756 and had a talent for music from the start. At the age of 4, he started to compose his own original music! Word began spreading about this amazing child genius, so his father took him on the road to show him off. Mozart traveled all over Europe performing for royalty and meeting famous musicians. He didn’t spend his entire life on tour. He wound up settling down in Vienna, Austria. He performed in concert as a solo pianist and composed many of his most beloved symphonies, concertos, string quartets, and operas. He married a singer named Constanze.

Concerto: a piece of music for a large band or orchestra that highlights one instrument

Opera: a dramatic piece in which singers and musicians perform with text and music and dance

String Quartet: group of four musicians playing string instruments

13 / 14 SEASON

Unfortunately Mozart’s career life was short. In September of 1791, at only 35 years old, he became very ill and died just a few months later. Mozart never got to complete his final work - the Requiem Mass - but it was finished by another composer and is one of his most famous pieces.”
