Students take a tour through the galleries highlighting the importance of music throughout Walt's life. With a focus on masterpieces like the Silly Symphonies (1929–39) and Fantasia (1940), the guided tour then transitions students into an interactive workshop where they make music collaboratively using a unique, pitched percussion instrument called Boomwhackers®. Musical lessons learned include: instrument families, tempo versus rhythm, and the ways that music can be used to express mood in a story.

 

Registration for the 2019–2020 academic year begins on August 1, 2019. Please email schoolexperience@wdfmuseum.org if you have any questions.

Other Programs

  • Students take a tour of our newest special exhibition, Mickey Mouse: From Walt to the World, with gallery activities and group discussions centered around one-of-a-kind Mickey artworks and objects. In the Learning Center, students bring to life their own animated characters using a Crankie box —illustrated stories literally cranked around two scrolls with a viewing screen. Students are welcome to self-guide through the main museum galleries before or after the workshop finishes.
