Test your ensemble's knowledge of music vocabulary and symbols with this match-through-demonstration game. Game cards cover band, choir, and orchestral terms.
Game Prep: Print and cut cards. Choose duos that are appropriate to your ensemble. Fold in half and place in a hat.
Game Play: Students draw cards from the hat. No talking is allowed. Students must locate their “duet partner” by demonstrating the musical term on their card. They may demonstrate by gesture (ex: conducting) or by playing (ex: sing a crescendo).
The last students to locate their partner must perform a short duet for the class (teacher’s choice).
