Musical Storytelling

by Folwell Dunbar

In this unit, we will look at the ancient art of oral storytelling through the lens of contemporary music. Dylan and Bono, blues and rap, character development and conflict resolution, voice and mood…We’ll listen to, discuss, analyze, and review songs, as well as write and perform our own. We’ll learn and practice techniques that will help us become better storytellers. In the process, we’ll also improve our listening, speaking, writing, and critical thinking skills. So open your ears and lift up your voices, sing me a story and tell me a song!
