"Do you think that introductory music and animation clips help, motivate and engage the participants of an e-learning course? Do genre, volume level and duration affect their concentration? Do music and animation clips constitute an attention grabber or an annoyance factor? Apparently, views are conflicting and experiences differ."

How to use music for branding - 7 Music Essentials to Convey Your Brand’s Story - Marketing with Music - Using Music to strike emotion

How to use music for branding - 7 Music Essentials to Convey Your Brand’s Story - Marketing with Music - Using Music to strike emotion | Serious Play | Scoop.it

"Music definitely tells a story. What story it tells depends on what message you want to convey to your audience. Every music video, every movie, every song, every commercial, every advertisement, and every other meaningful conversation tells a story. Whether they tell the right story depends on your understanding of your audience and your execution of that understanding."


Via Karen Dietz
Ariana Amorim's insight:

A good starting point to reflect on the use of music in training. This post can  inspire you to use music in some training activities to convey a story, an emotion...(eg. digital storytelling) or simply to set your audience in the right mood.

Fabulous point Ariana! It's a great idea. I love adding music into my trainings.
ValerieMalaval's comment, January 27, 2013 3:19 PM
Can share experience. We did an event where we put our team in a middle of an orchestra, doing a rehearsal. Was a magic moment in terms od emotion, but also key to understand each musician play without hearing all the other. Everytime, is the conductor who provides vision, direction and create the trust within this global body. That was very powerful to understand how conductor creates and rejevunate constantly trust within the orchestra, to go to something extraordinary that touched our hearts.

 I wanted to create a site with free 
music resources for parents and educators. Bringing music 
into the classroom can be intimidating for teachers without 
training in music education, but hopefully, these 
easy-to-implement ideas will open doors and new directions 
in early education.

Ariana Amorim's insight:

A great site where you can find Music games and activities. In this post you'll find 13 music games. Some are for kids only, others you can adapt for teens or even adult trainees.

Art & Soul: Making Connections with Music and Art | The Art of Ed

Art & Soul: Making Connections with Music and Art | The Art of Ed | Serious Play | Scoop.it

Music and the visual arts overlap in many areas: Kandinsky’s visual music, musicians who also paint and draw like John Lennon and Miles Davis, and visual artists who, in turn, make music (did you know Leonardo da Vinci was a vocalist?).

This is an example of an art project combining music and art.
