John William

A famous film composer for films scores such as Star Wars, Jurassic Park, E.T. and lots lots more! The word score is a key word here- it is another word for whole orchestral work. 

Our piece this week is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2-qrMz-JAzo the flying scene from ET. 
Film music is a fantastic opportunity for children to really listen to the music and describe what they think might be happening in the film. It is easier as the music has been composed for a specific purpose such as fast speedy music for a car chase.
Our piece this fortnight is a great opportunity to practise children's music listening skills. The pitch of the music is high representing them flying high, as well as fluttering flutes in the background. Those children who know Peter and the Wolf well will know the flute usually represents birds in music so their presence here can represent them flying high with the birds.
