Music Appreciation Monday – John Williams

Music Monday on Harmony Fine Arts @harmonyfinearts.org Join us every Monday for a new musical selection.

This week we will revisit a composer that many of us are familiar with and associate with so many of our favorite movies of all time. Jurassic Park (scares me every time!) has such a beautiful musical score written by John Williams. I picked a video that shows him actually conducting this theme. Also, the glimpse into the many instruments of the orchestral will be of interest to your children as well.

It is always fun to try to “conduct” while you listen. Encourage your children to get up and feel the music and conduct it…see if their arms can hold out for the entire piece of music!

Music Appreciation Monday – John Williams Superman

John Williams is a favorite composer around our home with my sons…so much life and energy in every piece. I am in amazement whenever I listen to a soundtrack he is written because it actually brings up the images of the movie and the story too! That is the magical part of his writing and he seems to nail it every time.

Listen to this piece: Superman (main theme)

Can you visualize Superman flying through the air? How about the dramatic scenes from the movie?

Music Appreciation Monday – John Williams

Isn’t music appreciation fun! The thing about it is that if your child doesn’t necessarily like one composer, he may like another because they all have their own style and sound. Just keep trying!

How about something a little more modern and perhaps familiar? I invite you to listen to this piece with your children and enjoy!

John Williams. Indiana Jones Theme.

Which parts of this piece do you like the best? The fast section? The slower parts?

Here is another piece of John Williams that we love: Theme from Hook.
