While your students may be excited about March Madness, you can run a Classical Music Bracket in classroom! If you don't have a large bulletin board, this looks great as a wall display. Introduce students to new pieces and composers at the beginning or end of every class in March.
The compositions are merely suggestions and are split with Mideival, Renessance, Baroque, Classical, Romantic, and Impressionist composers on the left and Modern composers on the right. I am aware that Impressionism is considered to be a part of the Modern period, so if you want to change the pieces up, you totally can, because the PowerPoint is editable! Just type, print, and display!
This would work for elementary though high school general music, choir, orchestra, and band. Use them for a calm way to end your class with a listening activity or open your classroom up to debate why students chose one piece over another.
