“I listen to all sorts of stuff.

Almost never traditional

Classical works.

Sometimes contemporary

Classical (I’ve got about

3,000 CDs of this type) but

lots of other things which

provide a contrasting

soundtrack to what I might

be composing during the day. I’ve been listening to the Dixie Chicks a lot lately, Allison Krauss (a real favorite), the new Beatles “Love” remix, Roxanne Panufnik’s choral music, Eminem’s various rap discs, Time For Three’s latest stuff, John Adams’ “Dharma at Big Sur”, Fleetwood Mac, James Blunt, general music from the 60’s, soundtrack to “Road to Perdition,” Peter, Paul & Mary, and Chanticleer’s discs.”

Let’s get in 6 groups, one for each theme.

Turn your paper over and write the letter of your theme at the top.

Illustrate what you might see on your part of Peachtree Street as you listen again.

You do not have to draw the same thing that others in your group are drawing.

What might your see?: (here are some ideas)

A busy intersection with lots of cars beeping their horns?

A café where people are sitting outside sipping iced tea and having lunch?

Lots of tall buildings with many people walking on the sidewalks?

People sitting in a park enjoying the birds and trees?

People out shopping at little shops, stopping to look in the windows?

A nice house with a beautiful flower garden and trees?

Now, let’s listen again.

This time, come up and show what you drew when you hear your theme.
