Exploring Story Elements in Music
In this lesson, students will analyze and explore story elements while listening to the first movement, Allegro ma non troppo, of Beethoven's Symphony No. 6 in F major, Op. 68, also known as the Pastoral Symphony. Students will be able to define setting, plot, theme, and imagery (figurative language) and identify the above elements in a story. Students will apply their knowledge and create their own story elements.
