Have you seen these super cool music animations produced by Animusic?
These highly creative animations are sure to mesmerize students, and are a fun resource for music teachers. In fact, Animusic has produced and made available free teacher guides for both of their DVDs. The guides were prepared by music teachers and correlate with items 6, 7, and 8 of the National Standards for Music Education. The first DVD has 7 unique music animations and the second one has 8.
Each animation lasts about 4 or 5 minutes. The videos on the Animusic DVDs have original instrumental music, which spans a variety of musical (and visual) styles. There is also one version of a classical piece – “Pictures at an Exhibition” by Mussorgsky. Check out the Reviews page to see how other music teachers are using and enjoying these animations in their teaching.
Now for the good part…I was recently contacted by Animusic and they’ve offered to give away 5 sets of DVDs to readers of Music Matters Blog! All you have to do is leave a comment below to be entered in the drawing. And, just for fun, you can earn an additional entry by linking to this giveaway from your blog or website. 🙂 (Just leave a second comment indicating that you posted a link and then you’ll be entered twice.) I’ll hold the drawing next Friday, April 24 at 12:00 noon CST.
