by Daniel Anker, Carol Ponder & Donna Santman • Preface by Eric Booth

Acclaimed by audiences and critics alike, Music From the Inside Out is a cinematic
exploration of the magic and mystery of music through the stories, passion, and
artistry of the 105 musicians of The Philadelphia Orchestra. Bring the excitement
of the film into the classroom through a newly developed curriculum that
engages students in reading, writing, listening and talking about all kinds of
music and offers students the opportunity to compose their own works. The
curriculum is intended for grades four and up and is constructed so that each
lesson may be used individually or as part of the complete curriculum. The
accompanying CD includes a wonderful selection of music examples for the
classroom. The full-length movie as well as a special supplemental teaching DVD
that includes excerpts not shown in the theatrical release are available.
