This week we took a final look at the film scores of John Williams. A film score is music for a movie. American composer and conductor John Williams has scored more than 100 films, including 'Jaws,' six 'Star Wars' movies, 'E.T.' and the first three 'Harry Potter' films. John Williams has been nominated for 49 Academy Awards and won 5 of them. This week we watched the "flying scene" from ET first without music and then with music. We described the ways that music enhanced our
ability to understand and be part of the action in the movie. The triangle roll and crescendo before they go off the cliff especially added to our emotional connection. John Williams has a talent for choosing the perfect sounds for each part of a movie!
