Austin О'Mailey Teacher: I want you to express your own opinions. Do you agree or disagree with these statements? Pupil 1: I absolutely agree with these people. Music is a part of our life.

Music enriches us and unites people of different nationalities. Pupil 2:Music helps us to understand the world around , us, and broadens our mind.

We have already spoken about musical places in Britain and in Russia, about your and your parents' attitude to music you listen to; about musicians, classical and pop music. We'll travel to a very beautiful magic world, the world of music. So, what will our travel be like? On our way we are going to make some stops at different stations and you'll do different tasks.

Follow-up Activities Activity 1 Teacher: We are coming to the first station "Musical Britain". Look at the map of the UK. Some musical centers of Britain can be seen here. Why are they marked on the map? Pupil 1: London is marked on the map, because this city has a long tradition of classical. music. I think it is so, because London is the capital of the country, its cultural centre. There are many theatres, opera houses and concert halls there. Pupil 2: Liverpool is well known as the home town of the Beatles. This pop-group first performed there in 1959. Pupil 3: Scotland has a tradition of bagpipe music. Not everyone likes the sound it makes, but to the Scots bagpipe music is the most exciting in the world. Every town in Scotland has a pipe band. Pupil 4: Aldeburgh is marked on the map because of the music festival. This festival is held every summer and was started by the English composer Benjamin Britten. Pupil 5:Edinburgh is internationally known because of an annual festival of music. This festival is held in August and September. It was first held in 1947. Activity 2 Teacher: Let us stop at the next station "Music: the soundtrack of our life". You will listen to different pieces of music for some seconds. Your task is to describe them and say what feelings they evoke in you. Classical music. Pupil 1:1 think, it is classical music. This music is melodic and appealing. It is a complex of emotions. It gives delight, pleasure and a sense of happiness. The power of classical music always captivates me. Jazz music. Pupil 2: To my mind, this piece of music is jazz. This music is a mixture of many different kinds of music. I consider it a bit complicated. Improvisation is an important part of this style. Rock music. Pupil 3: This is rock. I find this music noisy and dreadful, though some young people are fond of this style, it is not to everyone's taste. When I listen to this music to my mind it presents pictures of dark days. Music which is played too loudly can destroy our ears. Pupil 4: But I love rock. I listen to hard rock and techno. I like extreme sports and I think that rock goes well with all the feats made by extreme sports men. This music is exciting, and breathtaking; it gives me energy after a hard, boring day at school. Folk music. Pupil 5:If I am not mistaken, this is folk music. It is passionate, unforgettable and overwhelming. The tune is delightful and light. This music arouses romantic feelings. The mood is spirited, enthusiastic, and joyful. Pop music. Pupil 6:1 think, this piece represents pop music. It is full of energy. When I listen to pop music it helps me remember happy days and forget the problems of everyday life. It entertains me and helps me to relax.
