Product Description
Need a fun way to engage and assess what your students hear as you study about (and play) musical examples by the composer, John Philip Sousa? Use this listening glyph with Sousa on it to assess what your students hear. This resource comes with several song titles for you to choose from ("El Capitan," "Fairest of the Fair," "King Cotton," "The Liberty Bell," "National Emblem," "Semper Fidelis," "Stars & Stripes Forever," and "The Washington Post") as well as six versions of blank ones (no title) so you can choose a different title not already included.

The glyphs ask for students to recognize::
♪ strings vs no strings (you may have arrangements for either)
♪ singing vs not singing (as some arrangements are for vocals)
♪ woodwinds vs no woodwinds
♪ brass vs no brass
♪ change in dynamics vs no change
♪ song makes you want to move vs doesn't make you ant to move
These are arranged in different combinations - to go along with the various grade levels.

Make these glyphs part of a listening station, homework, or as a whole class activity.

Two complete sets are included : one with a gray scale frame and one set with the black/white frame.

Sousa is definitely the "March King"and his birthday is in November... ❤
