I.The importance of music.
At our lesson we are going to speak about music. People can’t live without music. They listen to music, they dance to music, they learn to play musical instruments. We can hear music everywhere: in the streets, in the shops, in the parks, in the cars, at the disco, on TV, over the radio. So, music helps us to live.
Henry Longfellow once said: “Music is the universal language of the world.” How can you explain these words? (Music is a part of our life. You can hear it everywhere. People can speak different languages but they listen to the same music, they play the same music.)

а) The report:
Tchaikovsky is one of the most famous Russian composers. His name is known all over the world. He was born on May 7, 1840 in Votkinsk, Vyatka region in the family of an engineer. His father was 45 and his mother was 26 when he was born. All his life Tchaikovsky adored his mother and two younger brothers Modest and Anatoly, who were twins. They understood each other and had very close relations. Tchaikovsky started to play the piano and compose music when he was very young. But he worked for a time as a clerk in the Ministry of Justice, though music was his true passion. In his early twenties he completely turned to a life of music. Tchaikovsky was one of the charter students of the St. Petersburg Conservatory which was founded by Rubinstein. At twenty-six he became one of the first professors at the Moscow Conservatory. It is often noted that Tchaikovsky was the first Russian professional composer. Tchaikovsky’s work is very impressive: 6 symphonies, 10 concerts and pieces for solo instruments, over 20 orchestral works, 9 operas, 3 ballets, over dozen pieces composed for special occasions. The classical Russian ballet has its beginning in Tchaikovsky’s works. The ballets «The Sleeping Beauty», «The Nutcracker», «Swan Lake» are the most popular works in the «golden treasure» of our musical theatres. Tchaikovsky enjoyed some of his fame being alive, traveling in Russia, Europe, the USA in his later years to conduct his works. For example, he participated in opening of Carnegie Hall in 1891. The last year of his life he was elected the Honorable doctor of the Cambridge University. Tchaikovsky died at the age of 55 in 1893 in St. Petersburg. He is an outstanding composer. The future generations will enjoy and love his music as much as we do.

Their songs and unusual sense of humor drew the peoples’ attention. Girls loved The Beatles and the young men tried to look like them. Newspapers, televisions focused on the group and made it famous. A hysteria that was called “Beatlomania” swept Britain and soon afterwards, America. The group broke up more than 30 years ago. But their songs will live forever.

What do you know about jazz?
Who is one of the most famous performers of jazz?
In the 1920s America fell in love with dancing and popular jazz music. Big hotels hired dance bands. Dance halls were opened around the country. New dances with strange names like Charleston were popular. One of the most famous musicians of the time was Louis Armstrong. He became famous for his trumpet playing and his low rough voice. He was a major force in shaping jazz music in America in the 1920s. He introduced new ideas to jazz and was known as the “King of Jazz.” Louis Armstrong was the first jazz soloist to receive worldwide recognition. His musical career began in the streets of New Orleans where he sang with other poor black children. His unique style had a major influence on his generation of trumpeters as well as other instrumentalists.
Jazz styles are always changing. In recent years jazz musicians have put together jazz music and rock instruments like the electric guitar. This new jazz style is called electric jazz or fusion.
5.The king of rock-n-roll
Who was the king of rock-n-roll?
Elvis Presley was known as "The King" of rock 'n' roll. He was born in Mississippi in 1935. At the age of 13, Elvis and his family moved to Memphis, Tennessee. There Elvis recorded his first song in 1954. He sold millions of records, served in the army, moved to Hollywood and appeared in 33 films. Elvis brought together the musical sounds of the blacks in America and of country people. His songs started a new period in American music. Elvis was the most popular performer of his day. At the news of his death in 1977, thousands of people gathered outside his home in Memphis. Elvis' songs are still popular today. People love to imitate him.

The participants from different countries arrive together and spend a week associating with each other. There is no aggression or fight. Experts say that the song must be melodious, attractive and not complicated.
