Halloween Student Survey Results
We always enjoy putting together fun surveys to see how our students really feel about current topics. Results from this recital’s students were all across the board!
- 18% of students voted for Danny Elfman as their favorite composer compared to 56% for John Williams. Both have very different styles of composition, I would never be able to choose! John Williams composes the most beautiful and grand scale scores for so many memorable movie moments. Danny Elfman famously works often alongside Tim Burton envoking unique sounds breaking a lot of traditional music composition rules.
- Both the Organ and Aeolian Harp have been used as main instruments in Halloween and spooky movies. 50% of students voted for the Organ as their favorite, not a surprise seeing as how the Aeolian Harp is so obscure!
- Jack Skellington (56%) was the favorite compared to Zero (39%). I’m partial to animals, so Zero gets my vote, but Jack Skellington is one infamous main character!
- We have a tie for Hotel Transylvania and The Addams Family. The Addams Family being the long standing favorite that has been remade multiple times as a feature film and also Saturday morning cartoon. Hotel Transylvania was so fun, it had a sequel and is already a classic!
- We also have a tie for sweet candy vs. chocolate candy. No surprises there! I think we all love all kinds of treats!
