This 45 minute interactive program is delivered live, via videoconference, each time it is presented.

Music inspires, changes minds, and paints vivid pictures in the listener's mind. Carefully chosen lyrics have the power to influence the listener or transport them to a place they've never been. During Musical Images of Indiana, students actively engage in an examination of songs about Indiana and Hoosier songwriters from the 19th century to present day. What geographic regions of Indiana have been emphasized and why? How do lyricists incorporate the use of metaphor, simile, and hyperbole to strengthen their song?

This program is cross curricular and aligns to Indiana Department of Education 4th Grade Standards for Language Arts, Social Studies, and Music. it is available during 2016, for free, to any school in Indiana and is designed for the 4th grade curriculum.
