Devising with music
Music is an integral part of theatre and can have an incredible impact in the creation of mood and atmosphere. However, when devising and rehearsing at GCSE, music can become a secondary concern and is often overlooked. This scheme aims to offer a range of ideas, stimuli and plans for using music as the basis and foundation of devised work, rather than something considered afterwards to complement it. The aim of this scheme is to help students explore how to devise both naturalistic and stylised drama using musi as their central focus. The music used is an eclectic mix of tracks, all widely available on iTunes.
