In this lesson, one of a multi-part unit from ARTSEDGE, students learn music vocabulary and use it to assess David Maddox's music from "The Nightingale" (a Kennedy Center production). Students then write an article for a newspaper column, critiquing the success or failure of the musical composition to personify characters in the musical.
