Olympics - music ideas please!

Discussion in 'Music' started by starlucky12, Mar 2, 2012.

  1. I'm looking for musical ideas with an olympics theme for a small project for students this summer. Any ideas welcome!
    Also any olympic themed songs (which I don't need to buy sheet music for) would be ideal!
  2. Not necessarily olympics, but we did a unit on music and sport with yr 8.

    We looked at the following:
    • opening ceremony and it's use of music. Examples were the drumming from beijing opening ceremony, and also the olympic hymn and it's history
    • National anthems
    • Fanfares - related this to each team being announced and parading in the open ceremony
    • Football/cheerleading chants
    May be able to glean something from that?

    Out of the Ark Music have currently got some sporty/healthy song downloads available from their website that you can use. They are £1.99 each but come from various different titles so you don't have to buy a book and cd just for one song!
  5. Take a look here www.miniminstrels.co.uk/olympics.html it may be what you need.... x
  6. Any good Torch songs would do!
