Disneyland Music 101 Class
October 24 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Music 101 will explore music theory, acoustics and storytelling to inspire students and teach them how to analyze the strategic use of music throughout the Disneyland Resort. Suited for beginning to intermediate music students, as well as anyone who loves music!
This is a hands-on creative experience that uses attractions and activities to discover Disney’s use of music to tell a story. The journey begins just inside the Main Entrance, where Walt Disney envisioned guests would have their tickets taken and walk through the ‘lobby’ of the theatre, before actually entering into the movie itself as a true 3-D experience! Walt wanted his guests to be part of the story, and from the moment the students walk through the train tunnel, they experience a specific scene from the turn of the century. Music plays a big part in the soundtrack of that atmosphere, and as your students will discover, music plays a role in every story being told in the Park!
Students will review the basics of musical theory, talk about binaural hearing, and learn to recognize both common and uncommon musical sounds as they venture through Main Street and into the center of the Park. From there they will explore other lands, finding the unique musical soundtracks of each one and discussing what sets them apart. Composers like the Sherman Brothers come into the conversation as students discover the kinds of roles that music at Disneyland offer, including composition, arrangement, stage management, performance, and many others!
Opportunities to create and play their own soundtrack within a story are included, as the participants explore the variety of musical styles found in the unique and much loved stories that are found only in the Disneyland Resort!
