The Music Factory

Ideal for grades 1 - 4
Duration: Ten 30-minute programs
Closed-Captioned
©1994 State of Hawaii Dept of Education

The Music Factory provides a solid foundation of musical knowledge upon which grade 1-4 students can build — by teaching music through a conceptual approach and by providing interesting and meaningful demonstrations of musical classroom activities.

The programs explore the wide range of musical porduction and exposition - from an elemental study of how vibrations produce sounds, to development of diverse vocal and instrumental compositions. Each program features a well-known composer or artist.

Each program contains 16 to 20 modules held together by the centerpiece - a Music Factory. The factory is an industrial-looking clubhouse where program hosts talk to viewers about different musical activities under study, and focus on the musical pursuits and abilities of young people interested in music.

Rights granted with the purchase of DVD include: a) life of media audiovisual use, b) public performance, c) campus or building closed circuit and digital/video-on-demand transmission.
