THE MUSIC OF ANZAC DAY

We have all seen the symbols of ANZAC day; 
The Poppy, the White Crosses row-on-row, the Silhouettes of Soldiers standing on the battle field, War Medals, the Cenotaph. 
All of these symbols evoke (make us feel) emotions because they represent (they portray or describe) the spirit of our soldiers and their sacrifice.

Have you ever stopped to think about the music of ANZAC day?

* What is the meaning of each of these songs / pieces of music?
* What was their purpose? 
* Who is the composer of each piece of music?
* What instruments are used for each piece of music? 
* Why are these the instruments used / chosen?

GET CREATING:

* Make a large model of one of the symbols of Anzac Day and present the findings from your research on it. 

GET COMPOSING: 

* Write a song that says THANK YOU to all the men and women who fought so that we could be free.

WRITE YOUR LYRICS: 

Step 1: Write a list of words that you think of when you think of leaving your family, travelling to a far off land and fighting in a war. 
(For Example: Goodbye, Sadness...)

Step 2: Next to each word from the list you wrote in step one, write  two or three words that rhyme with these words.
(For Example: To die, Madness...)

Step 3: Using your words from step 1 and your rhyming words from step two, write them into rhyming couplets (Two lines that end with words that rhyme with each other).
(For Example: You went to fight, you said goodbye
So many of you; sent to die.

Farewells to Family soaked in sadness
Off to face a world of Madness)

Step 4: Now that you have your rhyming couplets, try to pair them up so that you have verses with four lines.

WRITE YOUR MELODY:

Step 1: Based on what kind of song you want to write, choose your instruments.
Pop Song: Guitar / keyboard / Drums / 
Classical music: Violin, Trumpet, Piano
Rap: Backbeat, turntables, samples

Step 2: Play. Put notes together and write a melody. Throw away the tunes you don't like! Write down the tunes you do like! 
Each line of your verse can have the exact same tune 
OR
the 2nd and 4th line could have the same tune
OR
the 1st and 3rd line could have the same tune

Step 3: Practise! Practise! Practise! Repeat your music over and over until it is stuck in your head. Sing your lyrics to the notes of your melody! You have just composed a song!

LISTENING POST: 

WEEK 4:

SoundScaping:
When we listen to music, we should feel what the composer was feeling when they wrote the music. 
We should see the images that they were trying to evoke. 
We should hear the wordless message they were trying to communicate. 

Listen to these compositions (Don't watch the YouTube video!). 
Grab a piece of paper and draw or paint the feelings, thoughts, pictures and messages.


WEEK 3:

Variations on a Theme: 
Quite often a song that the public fall in love with will be reinvented and rerecorded by a number of different artists. 
Listen to these versions of the song "Yesterday" by The Beatles


1) Think about the instruments you can hear in each version of the song
2) What style of music (Genre) is each version written in
3) Most importantly, which version do you like the best?

WEEK 2: 

Click on the Orchestra Name, listen to the music and watch the video!
You might recognise a few of these.
