Engage and assess what your (K-8) students hear in a fun, creative and artistic way as you study about (and play) music from Little Red Riding Hood (Opera, Classical & Jazz genres). Use these listening glyphs to enhance the following composers and their musical selections:
Red Riding Hood by Seymour Barab (great to use with Opera on the Go):
♬ "I'm the Wolf"
♬ "Echo Song"
♬ “Little Red Meets the Wolf”
♬ “Grandmother's Aria”
♬ “Grandma, What Big Eyes You Have and Help!"
Little Red Riding Hood by George Couroupos:
♬ 1, 2, 3, and 4
“Little Red Riding Hood” by David Llewellyn (from Kinderjazz)
Chest Of Fairytales, Op. 20: The Story Of Little Red Riding Hood (Passepied) by Valery Tarakanov
5 etudes-tableaux: No. 4 Red Riding Hood and the Wolf
by Rachmaninoff & Respighi
Some of the skills assessed in this set include:
♬ man's voice vs woman's voice
♬ one voice vs more than one voices
♬ singing vs no singing (vocal vs no vocals)
♬ steady vs unsteady beat
♬ strings vs no strings (also: violins vs no violins, double bass vs no double bass, harp vs no harp)
♬ woodwinds vs no woodwinds (also: flute vs no flute, clarinet vs no clarinet, saxophone vs no saxophone)
♬ brass vs no brass (also: trumpet vs no trumpet, trombone vs no trombone)
♬ percussion vs. no percussion (also glockenspiel vs no glockenspiel, woodblock vs no woodblock)
♬ dynamics stay the same vs dynamics change (also loud vs quite/soft)
♬ tempo changes vs stays the same
♬ mood or feel of the song
Play a recording (not included) and have your students follow the color codes key to assess what they hear. Also great for classroom teachers to go along with the story versions (a nice comparison)!
