Using music to illustrate a story

One of the "big ideas" in general music for first grade is to focus on how music can be used to help tell a story.  The kids learn that adding music to a story is like adding an illustration.  Like a picture musical accompaniment tends to focus on central themes and ideas and not get bogged down in minor details.  In the process, hopefully, the things the kids are learning about story sequencing in their classrooms are reinforced.
