The Big Picture of Music

The Big Picture of Music is a PowerPoint presentation with live music designed for in-school presentation to elementary school students.  This program is designed to excite and inspire young people to start studying music.  Most western musical instruments are introduced in this educational and entertaining presentation.

A musical performance starts each program, with Brian performing a popular rock style song.  After the performance, students are introduced to many musical instruments including those of the symphony orchestra.   Brian demonstrates a number of instruments, and also introduces friends and colleagues on the screen with their instruments.   Instruments are introduced in families (strings, woodwinds, brass and percussion) with demonstrations in each family of instruments.  Time is spent discussing the piano and voice, and an extended percussion demonstration is included.

After these introductions and demonstrations, an orchestral piece of music recorded by the Houston Symphony is played, with Brian pointing out what his friends in the orchestra are doing, as the music plays.

Each program concludes with a musical performance by Brian.

The Big Picture of Music has been presented in Houston ISD, Pasadena ISD, and all elementary schools in Clear Creek ISD.  The length of the program is 40 to 60 minutes.  It can also be tailored to fit block time schedules.  For more information or to check availability for your school, please contact Brian at
