The Power of Music in Film


Our culture and environment inform our perception and expectations. The Power of Music in Film is a fun and engaging programme that aims to test these preconceptions and encourage students to think more deeply about the ubiquitous movie soundtrack.

- Introduction to film music and the types of roles music can take in films. 
- Live performance of the different musical roles played with projected film. 
- How music and sound affect the audience’s experience. 
- What is foley sound and student participation.  
- Students will be encouraged to share their opinions on what music goes with different scenes. 

No prior music background is required to enjoy this live music demonstration.


Students will enjoy live musicians playing different types of music to a film and discover how music can affect the viewer’s experience. 

At the end of the programme, students (should) 

- have an awareness of what film music is 
- have an understanding of why teamwork and communication is important 
- have enjoyed watching film with live music 
- possibly be inspired to learn a musical instrument

- develop an appreciation of film music and possibly take an interest in the art of music or film-making 
- have gained knowledge to inform their creative pursuits and expressive capacities 
- have an awareness of how music affects film and the different roles music take in films
- be more open-minded about non-conventional approaches to making art 

Students interested in film, theatre or other art forms can look into exploring different music for their creative pursuits.
