Today we are having an unusual lesson because the students have prepared some projects and we are going to listen to them. But first of all I want you to guess one word. Look at the blackboard. You can see a list of words. There is one missing letter in each word. Please write down each missing letter.

So, you see the word MUSIC, and our topic is “Music in my life”. Today we shall speak about different styles in music. On the blackboard you can see a charming quotation:
(учитель открывает заранее закрытое слово “Music”)

T. But what role does music play in your life?
P2. Music helps us to live and learn.

T. Where can we hear music?
P4. We can hear music everywhere: in concert halls, shops, on TV, over the radio, in the parks, at homes, in transport and even in the street.
T. What do you think about when you listen to music?
P5. When I listen to music I forget about everything.
P6. When I listen to music I want to sing and dance.

T. And I fully agree with you. When I listen to music I can think about nothing but music. As far as you know music may be different. I see you like music and now it is high time to listen to your projects. Be very attentive because you will have a small test.
(каждая группа представляет свои музыкальные проекты)
P1. Let me introduce our group. We are fond of jazz. Jazz was created in the United States by black Americans. It is a mixture of many different kinds of music. It is a combination of the music of West America, the work songs the slaves sang, and religious music. Jazz bands were formed in the late 1800-s. Improvisation is an important part of jazz.
P2. Jazz became more and more popular. Today, people all over the world play jazz. People who like jazz always remember American jazzman Louis Armstrong. And now let’s listen to jazz.
P3. We want to tell you about classical music. As for me I have found classical music the closest to my soul. Most of the people of my age would think I’m a bit mad to love Strauss, Tchaikovsky, Bach, Mozart, Beethoven in place of Eminem or Tamy. But I find classical music relaxing. This music has been living for centuries. It is heard in every corner of our land. Some people simply don’t understand classical music, but it has a deep intellectual appeal and it creates a special spiritual world for the listener that enriches his inner life and makes him happy.
P4. When I listen to the light classical music as to “Seasons” by Tchaikovsky, I enjoy this wonderful music. It helps me feel much better. Of course, it’s difficult to find the way into serious classical music. I think, we must be taught not only to listen but to understand, which is more important. I like to play classical music. This music makes me feel like dreaming. And now I want you to listen to a peace of classical music.
P5. We are going to tell you about rock. It is my music! As for me I prefer rock all the year round, because it can express all kinds of my mood. I can find a firm support in rock. Within this music I feel strength and stability. Rock music, or, rather rock-n-roll, appeared in the 1950-s. The first rock music is connected with the names of Elvis Presly, Chuck Berry, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, The Doors and some others.
P6. The70-s were the time of revolution in rock music. Lead Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Uriah Heep, Black Subbath told the world about the beginning of new era of hard rock. I’d say that, of course, tastes differ and everybody is fond of particular genre of music. But I am mad about rock. And now let’s listen to rock music.
P7. We are going to tell you about folk music. This music lives on for centuries. Every nation has its own national music and dance ensembles and choirs. The British are very fond of their folk music. They held special Folk Festivals, where the young can learn about their national culture and folk music. (звучит фрагмент народной мелодии в исполнении учащегося)
P9. I love pop music. The dictionary defines pop music as “modern popular music of a simple kind with a strong beat and not usually of lasting interest, liked especially by younger people”. I think it is not difficult for understanding. It’sunusual and exciting and it’s the way of sharing all our hopes and fears. I like to know more and more about popular talented groups and singers I like.
P10. I want to add that unfortunately there are so many ungifted singers on the stages that it makes me sad. I think that only talented people can claim to be singers. As for me I like new rhythms, I prefer pop music. It is probably the result of changing times and influence of mass media. Pop music unites the teenagers all over the world and makes us feel a part of global family. We can hear this music every day and everywhere. I think music is really, first of all, the background of our life, it helps us to live, and it makes our mood. Now let’s listen to my favourite singer Dima Bilan.
