P3: In my opinion, life without music isn’t interesting at all.
P4: Really, the life would be a mistake if we didn’t hear music, because music helps us in everyday life.
IV. Main part
1. Practice in Speaking and Writing.
Vocabulary revision (Work in groups).
T: Music is really very important in our life. It reflects people’s ideas and emotions, feelings, it inspires and comforts us. What role does music play in our life? How does it influence people? To answer these questions, I want you to work in groups. Write as many words as possible to complete the mind maps.
(Group 1 writes verbs to the word “music”.)
(Group 2 writes adjectives to the phrase “music makes us…”)
P1: Music is a part of life. I can’t spend a day without music. In the morning I prefer fast rhythmical music, it’s like a cup of coffee or a cool shower that encourages and revives me. It is like a magic source of happiness and vigor for me.
P2: As for me, music is my comfort and delight. If I am in a bad mood or humour, or even if I have some problems, I turn to music. I listen to my favourite melody, and my spleen disappears. I forget my problems, and the world around me becomes better, and I want to do something good for other people. So, music ennobles me, makes me better and happier.
P3: Music helps me relax. After school I usually come home very tired and exhausted. I listen to music, sometimes it is slow and sometime rhythmical, and feel that my tiredness disappears, and I am full of energy again.
P4: Music is very important to me. I like to listen to music, to dance to music, even to do my homework to music, and it doesn’t disturb me. Frankly speaking, best of all I like to draw my pictures to music. When music is sad and slow, my pictures are not very colorful, they are sad too, but when music is fast, strong and expressive, my pictures are bright. Music develops my imagination and inspires me to draw my best pictures.
P5: As for me, for example, classical music is associated with an early spring morning. It is a bit cool, and the air is very fresh. Most people are still sleeping in their soft beds and watching colorful sweet dreams. But the nature is awakening. The flowers begin to flourish and smell. The sun is rising, and birds begin to sing and to greet a coming day. And this orchestra performs a morning sonata.
P6: Making mind map I have written a rhyme.
The morning light,
The touch of beauty,
Which gives us love to breathe,
The polyphonic splendid music.
It is like beauty’s kiss.
T: Look at the blackboard. You can see the quotation by D. Kabalevsky. Some words are omitted.
“Music not only entertains us, but ____________ us a lot. It is like a book: it makes us ______, _______ and ________.”
Choose the appropriate words from each mind map and complete the quotation according to your understanding, create your own quotations and compare them with the original and express your attitude to it.
(Pupils create their own quotations and comment them.)
The original: “Music not only entertains us, but teaches us a lot. It is like a book: it makes us better, cleverer and kinder.”
2. Vocabulary work.
T: Open your books on page 76, ex.1.
3. Speaking (Work in pairs).
4. Projects Presentation.
T: I see you like music. And now present your projects you were supposed to prepare for today. We have got two groups with different tasks. Each group has to make their presentations about your favourite music style. Let’s start. So, the first group please.
(1 – я группа звучит музыка)
P1: As for me I love pop music. The dictionary defines pop music as modern popular music of a simple kind especially for younger people. I think it’s unusual and exciting and it’s the way of sharing all our hopes and fears. I like to know more and more about popular talented groups and singers I like. For example, I like the group Serebro very much.
P2: We can hear this music every day and everywhere. I think pop music is really helps us to live, and it makes our mood. I think that only talented people can claim to be singers. As for me I like new rhythms, I prefer pop music. Pop music unites the teenagers all over the world and makes us feel a part of global family.
P3: What music is it? And now listen to about rock. It is our music! As for me I prefer rock all the year round, because it can express all kinds of my mood. I can find a firm support in rock. Rock music, or, rather rock-n-roll, appeared in the 1950-s. The first rock music is connected with the names of Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, The Doors and some others.
P4: The 70-s were the time of revolution in rock music. Queen, Lead Zeppelin, Deep Purple told the world about the beginning of new era of hard rock. I’d say that, of course, tastes differ and everybody is fond of particular genre of music. But I am mad about rock.
T: That’s great. And now it is time for the next group to present their project.
(2 – я группа звучит музыка, звучит фрагмент “Requiem” by Mozart)
P1: We have just listened to a piece of charming music. We want to tell you about classical music. As for me I have found classical music the closest to my soul. But I find classical music relaxing. The music of such composers as Strauss, Tchaikovsky, Bach, Mozart, Beethoven are listened to all over the world. This music has been living for centuries. It is heard in every corner of our land. Some people simply don’t understand classical music, but it has a deep intellectual appeal and it creates a special spiritual world for the listener. Classical music makes people happy.
P2: When I listen to the light classical music as to “Requiem” by Mozart, I enjoy this wonderful music. It helps me feel much better. Of course, it’s difficult to find the way into serious classical music. I think, we must be taught not only to listen but to understand, which is more important. I like to listen to classical music. This music makes me feel like dreaming.
P3: We are going to tell you about folk music. This music lives on for centuries. Every nation has its own national music and dance ensembles and choirs. The British are very fond of their folk music. They held special Folk Festivals, where the young can learn about their national culture and folk music.
P4: But I know that there are some Russian folk groups. The members of these groups sing Russian folk songs. They restore old folk songs. I like to listen to these songs because it is interesting to learn about the past. We know Zara, Nataly and group of Russian songs. In Russian culture there is also a special form of folk songs called “chastushka”. Russian people like them. Now I want you to listen to a piece of folk song.
T: Thank you very much for your interesting information. As you know music may be different. Read some brief information and try to guess what type of music it is.
