I took Music 224, the appreciation of music, my freshman year. This class focused on the importance of music within a variety of presidential films. Our final project for this class was to pick a specific movie, and identify common themes for music throughout the movie. During this project, my group found that a common tune was played during every sad scene, another tune was played whenever the president was doing something questionable, ect. Before taking this class, I never noticed the importance of music in movies. I knew it played a role in the movie and made some scenes more dramatic but I never picked up on the commonality of the same tune being played in similar scenes. Now, whenever I watch a movie, I notice if there is a theme song/tune for similar scenes.
