Sometimes two seemingly opposite genres have a lot in common! Use this listening log for students to compare and contrast two genres of your choosing. Play two songs from two different genres as students record brief answers in the small boxes for each song for each category:
- Absence/presence of beat, tempo and simple or complex rhythm
- Instrument families
- Lyrical content
- Absence/presence of melody and harmony, location of melody if it exists
There is a brief response question at the end for students to determine whether or not the genres have more or less on common.
