In this lesson, we are learning about rooms in our house. Please open ‘Rooms of the House’ and go through the slides. There will be different activities for you to complete on the slides.

Music (1 hour)

Listen to ‘The Way You Look Tonight’ by Tony Bennett.

The original version of ‘The Way You Look Tonight’ was by Jerome David Kern (January 27th 1885 – November 11th 1945). He was an American composer of musical theatre and popular music. ‘The Way You Look Tonight’ is a song featured in the film ‘Swing Time’. It won the Academy award for Best Original Song in 1936.


What Can You Hear?

The vocal line: how many singers? Male/female?

The backing/accompaniment: how many instruments? Which ones?

Which instruments plays the solo?

Is there a hook?

The texture: is it thick, thin or inbetween? Are there many layers of sound, or just one/two? Are there many voices singing/instruments playing, or just one/two?

The tempo: is it fast, slow or inbetween?

The dynamics: is the music loud, quiet or inbetween? Is it the same throughout or does it vary?

What is the Style of this Music? Is it Pop/Rock/Blues/Gospel/Ballad/R&B/Rap/Soul?


Recently, we looked at the style indicators of a pop ballad. Some are listed below. What are the style indicators that you can hear in this song?

  • Slow and gentle backing.
  • Uses instruments like strings and piano and acoustic guitar.
  • The bass and drums are subtle.
  • The words of the ballad are about lost love or celebrating love!
  • Sometimes a pop ballad can have a rock backing and it then becomes a power ballad. This is because of its more powerful backing using electric guitars and heavier drum patterns.


Compare this song to Adele’s ‘Make you feel my love’ which we focused on recently. Are there similarities? Differences? Which one do you prefer? Why?
