KEEPING SCORE with the San Francisco Symphony
The Keeping Score web site is designed to give people of all musical backgrounds an opportunity to explore the music and life of the composers featured in the Keeping Score television series in depth, and at their own pace. Extensive audio, video, and critically acclaimed interactive material explores each composer’s scores and pertinent musical techniques as well as the personal and historical stories behind them in a user-friendly way. The site is designed to appeal particularly to high school, college and university music appreciation students and their teachers, and its interactive learning tools offer a unique and in-depth online learning experience. The site also includes a historical timeline that takes users deeper into the eight individual composers’ political, social, and cultural milieus as well as downloadable lesson plans created by teachers who have experienced the Keeping Score Education program.
