LESSON PROCEDURE

I. Beginning of the Lesson

Organizational moment

T. Good morning, pupils. I'm your teacher of English. I'm Tetiana Leonidivna.

 I'm very glad to see you here. How are you? I hope you are ready for our lesson, aren't you? You see Christmas is coming. Can you imag­ine this or any other holiday without music? (Here the melody "Merry Christmas"sounds.) And now you hear emotional and charming music that touches us.

Warm Up

T. No wonder we are going to speak about music today. It's an inseparable part of holidays cele­brations. At the end of our lesson you’ll do a project work. We have 4 groups Sounds, Songs, Cool band, World-known singers. Members of the group get points for themselves and for their group. At the end of the lesson we find out the winner of our lesson.  Look at the board, please and read the motto of our lesson.

(The pupils read the motto: "Life without music would be a mistake" by Friedrich Nietzsche.) Do you agree with this wonderful quotation?

P1. It goes without saying I do because we can't imagine our life without music. P2. I consider that life without music would be so dreary, so boring!

P3. In my opinion life without music isn't inter­esting at all. It's senseless, I should say.

P4. Really, life would be a mistake if we didn't hear music because music helps us in everything we do.

P5. It fills our hearts with sweet delight.

P6. It moves us and makes us happy, etc.

Akiko Kato is fifteen and she lives in Vancouver, Canada. She is an ordinary girl in most ways, but there is something special in her life. She is a member of the National Youth Orchestra. Let's listen to her.

"I started playing the violin at the age of seven. I was always a good singer, and I could play in tune almost immediately. But it is a difficult instrument. After eight years, I'm still learning.

My Dad plays the guitar, and we often play together. Not classical music, but Scottish dances, American folk songs — that sort of things. Last Saturday we played dance music for my little brother's birthday party. Everybody joined in, and it was great.

I joined the National Youth Orchestra three years ago. Now it takes up a lot of my time: usually five hours a week and at least two weeks every summer.

Last year we did a tour of the country: Toronto, Montreal, Quebec, Winnipeg and back to Vancouver. There were 72 of us, and we really got to know each other. It was fantastic.

My favourite composer is Mozart. At the moment we are doing one of his violin concerts. Mozart wrote it when he was 19. And in fact the music is really young and energetic.

I like modern pop music, too. But I don't like rap or heavy metal."
