Created for my senior Music 1 students.
This is a 'deconstruction' of the first 2mins 52secs (48bars) of 'The Anvil Chorus', from Il Trovatore by Guiseppe Verdi.
The questions are divided up into the structure of this excerpt. This helps give students a scaffold of how to think in order to respond to a Higher School Certificate aural question on PITCH.
At the end of each section (intro, verse, chorus) they are given the opportunity to summarise all their answers from that section, into 3-4 points, in a way they could write it as their response in the HSC.
I am trying to teach them how to think!
I hope you find this worksheet helpful.
