Урок — музыкальная гостиная

Разделы: Иностранные языки

Комплексное решение практических, образовательных, воспитательных и развивающих задач обучения возможно лишь при условии воздействия не только на сознание учащихся, но и проникновения в их эмоциональную сферу.

Одним из наиболее эффективных способов воздействия на чувства и эмоции школьников является музыка, представляющая собой “ сильнейший психический побудитель, в подспудные глубины сознания ” (см.Леви В. Вопросы психобиологии музыки.) Известный педагог Ян Амос Коменский писал, что тот, кто не знает музыки, уподобляется не знающему грамоты.

    • I think that it is difficult to live without music! We can hear music everywhere: in the streets, at home, over the radio and TV, in the shops, in the concert halls. There are many different types of music and groups that you can enjoy. If you want to, you can go to a techno night, a classical concert, a reggae band. Pop music is influenced by music from all over the world. Such group as ‘’The Beatles’’ is very popular in England and in Russia. Nowadays the young people like to listen to “The Beatles’’ too. I am sure music makes us think! You are welcome to our wonderland ‘’The Beatles’’ by name!


We are speaking to the leader of a Russian group!

Hi! Your group is very popular. People say that you sing only in English.

I wonder why? Can you start from the beginning?

Now let’s relax a little! (Группа ребят исполняет песню

“ Yesterday ‘’)


John Lennon and Paul McCartney

All my troubles seemed so far away,
Now it looks as though they’re here to stay,
Oh, I believe in yesterday.
I’m not half the man I used to be,
There’s shadow hanging over me,
Oh, yesterday came suddenly.
Why she had to go I don’t know, she wouldn’t say,
I said something wrong, now I long for yesterday.
Love was such an easy game to play,
Now I need a place to hide away,
Oh, I believe in yesterday.
Why she had to go I don’t know, she wouldn’t say,
I said something wrong, now I long for yesterday.
Love was such an easy game to play,
Now I need a place to hide away
Oh, I believe in yesterday.

PUPIL 3 : We gathered together because we like to listen to ‘’ The Beatles’’. Our mothers and fathers grew up with their songs. I hope our love to this group will help us to understand each other better.

PUPIL 4 : The most classless music – rock and pop music is listened to by a lot of people all over the world. It is also crosses national barriers as class barriers. Every year about 40 per cent of the best – selling singers in Europe are British. The people who put Britain at the front of the pop revolution of the 1960s were “ The Beatles’’.

PUPIL 5 : This group was formed at the end of the 50s. John, Paul, George, Ringo were amazing and talented boys who made an unique contribution to music and it made a revolution in pop history. The boys composed for the youth.

Their songs seemed more musical and more exciting than others.

PUPIL 6 : The new British sound was heard, it was very different from the Atlantic.

This was the Liverpool “beat music’’ _ the expression meant pop music with a strong rhythm. Situated in the Industrial Black Country, Liverpool was not a place to visit. It was known as one of the largest ports. Only then it became world famous as the birthplace of the new pop culture which swept across most of the countries of the world.

PUPIL 7: Liverpool finally caught the public’s imagination, ‘’Scouse’’ the type of speech of those people who were born in the city grew to be represented, admired and understood by the teennage population. The ‘’Cavern’’ a club of ‘’The Beatles’’ came to be a kind of Mecca Now it’s common to see posters advertising a holiday in Britain and saying

‘’ You can breath the air ‘’The Beatles ‘’ breathed.

(группа учащихся исполняют песню “ Yellow Submarine’’).


In the town where I was born lived a man who sailed the sea
And he told us of his life in the land of submarines
So we sailed up to the sun till we found the sea of green
And we lived beneath the waves in our yellow submarine
We all live in a yellow submarine
And our friends are all on board,
Many more of them live next door,
And the band begins to play
We all live in a yellow submarine
And we live a life of ease,
Everyone of us has all we need
Sky of blue and sea of green in our yellow submarine.
We all live in a yellow submarine.

PUPIL 8: “ The Beatles’’ showed professionalism and made impressive figures on the stage. They looked nicer than anyone else. Their manager gave them a new “ Clean’’ image with short hair, white shirts and elegant suits.

And their unusual sense of humour drew the people’s attention.

PUPIL 9: Many more people began to listen to pop music. Girls loved ‘The Beatles’’ and young men tried to look like them. Newspapers and TV focused on the group and made it famous. A hysteria that was called ‘” Beatlomania’’ swept Britain and many other countries.

Of all the rest, Lennon made the most promising start as a solo artist. But in 197 he stopped making records. For a while he and Joko separated because the problems with drugs and alcohol. Lennon spent time trying to become an American citizen, but it was not easy because of his outspoken political social news. But one night in December 1980 John Lennon was murdered in New York.

At the end of 1999,Paul McCartney was performing rock’ n’ roll songs at the Cavern Club in Liverpool, the industrial city in the north of England where he first became famous. Only 300 invited guests were able to see him at the Cavern, but three million watched the concert via the Internet.

He was an ordinary teenager of seventeen when in 1957 he met John Lennon, who was two years older.

They both loved rock’ n’ roll. Three years later, with two other young musicians, they formed The Beatles. The group played in Liverpool, then went on to tour in Hamburg, Germany. Soon the four Beatles with their unusual hair styles were famous. In 1962 everyone was singing Love Me Do and the following year, She Loves You, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah. Lennon and McCartney were the group’s songwriters and they played guitars, together with George Harrison. Ringo Starr was the drummer.

Their music was new and enormously popular. They were stars, with millions of fans all over the world. When they arrived at Kennedy Airport to begin a tour of the United States in 1964, more than three thousand teenagers were waiting for them, screaming and crying in delight. Throughout the 1960s they went on making hits. In 1967, when the recording of All You Need is Love was transmitted worldwide as part of the first global TV link ‘Our World’. 400 million people were watching. In 1969 they made Abbey Road but the following year The Beatles broke up. Lennon went on writing. He wrote peace songs like Imagine and Give Peace a Chance. In 1980, tragically, he was murdered.

Paul McCarney’s name and fame continued to grow with his new group, Wings. His 1977 song Mull of Kintyre became the biggest-selling British single. In 1990 he performed in Rio de Janeiro in front of the largest paying audience of all time.

The Beatles revolutionized pop music. More than thirty years later in the Cavern Club, Paul McCartney was remembering those exciting early days.
