This short film provides a good opportunity to enable your students to discover classical music, something with which young people are often unfamiliar. In music class, students could learn to play a few notes or chords on an instrument from each of the orchestra sections: strings, woodwinds, brass, and percussion. In this way, they can discover the sounds and then be able to recognize them in a symphonic work.
