Music and Storytelling

Choose a well-known children’s story and dramatise this, using musical motifs, sound effect, character songs and instrumental music to accompany the drama/narrative. This can take the form of a stage production or a radio version of the story.

We choose the story of ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ and dramatise this into a radio version. To make the story come alive, we used the instrumental version of ‘Teddy Bears Picnic’ for the effect of ‘if you go into the woods today…’. Additionally, we used musical motifs for every time Little Red Riding Hood was mentioned to signal the entrance of an important character. Sound effects were also used to help bring the story to life, for example, using a scream when the woodcutter is in the forest.
