Brilliant!! What a great lesson for the beginning of a new school year! Creative & informative! Our 7th graders will love this lesson! Since we don't have access to video cameras, I plan to have them divide into small groups, offer them 3 different theme song choices and let them work out a title and perform a scene (only sound will be the music) which would illustrate to a potential audience what the show belonging to the theme song will be about.

This is a really helpful resource, thank you very much. Even if I don't use it all in class, it's good for my own reference. For anyone using this, I've highlighted the following points in the arrangement of Mission Impossible (which I already use, so know well): 1) Bar 5-7, RH: don't reiterate the note names for tied notes (as has been done in the LH riff and bars 11-13); 2) Bars 14 and 22, RH: should be Eb-D, not E-Eb; 3) Bars 15-18, RH: Where's the tune? It's an exact transposition of bars 5-8 down a perfect 5th (C minor); 4) Bars 22, LH: The bass is should be D-D-Eb-F-D___________ with no repeats. Pupils could even do an octave tremolo on the long D (not too hard, but effective) followed by a dramatic pause before the last chords; 5) The final chords are Bb/Ab - Eb/Db. You could reduce these to single notes, but at least get the top part playing F - G; 6) My last point is less crucial. The LH in bar 14 should lead the music to the next key, viz. G - G - Bb - B, i.e. breaking the pattern of the previous bars. It's something extra to remember, so might be to confusing for pupils. This has been done in bar 18, for the return to G minor, although the notes of the original are C - C - Eb - F (exactly like the preceding bar) followed by a downward leap of a 7th to the G in bar 19. I hope that's helpful.
