Berklee PULSE, Soundtrap for Education and the Take Me To The River Education Initiative present the following educational resources based on the documentary Take Me To The River New Orleans by filmmaker Martin Shore.
These lessons strive to share the story of where American music came from, promote tolerance and respect for all people and cultures, and create a deeper understanding of history and civil rights through music. Teachers can select from a variety of lesson types, including a mix of history, listening activities, hands-on musical activities (singing, transcribing, playing instruments, clapping), and opportunities to use Soundtrap, or another DAW to create unique compositions.
