This item is part of The Marvelous Musical Deli Series. The Marvelous Musical Deli is a free
online resource dedicated to teaching the concept of musical form. The website and video series are an endeavor to take the somewhat abstract concept of form and make it more concrete for younger students. Join Simon Sandwich and his crew of Deli Dudes as they bring form to life. Visit musicaldeli.iheartteachingmusic.com
for more details.
Think your students are getting the idea behind analyzing form in music? Test their ears in this guided listening activity. Students listen to short musical excerpts to determine their form (AB/AABB, ABA, or AABA) and arrange deli characters (Simon Sandwich, Betsy Bologna, etc.) to represent the patterns they hear. To see the deli character cards in action, visit The Marvelous Musical Deli's Extension Ideas
page. Choose to have students work in small groups, with a partner, or individually. A few short musical examples are suggested, but feel free to use your favorite pieces. (Music files not included - you must purchase your own copies.)
