Composer Allen Toussaint helps children explore musical contour, and learn how repetition, variation and contrast are used in creating melodies. Your students "draw" melodies, "act out" musical contours and "build" songs as they create their own musical compositions. Behind the Scenes is an exciting and fun exploration for children and adults alike into the world of painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, music, dance and theater. Produced & Directed by Ellen Hovde and Muffie Meyer. Hosted by Penn and Teller.
