PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Music Listening Guide, Music Vocabulary Definitions, & Lesson Plan for a Music-Listening Center OR Direct InstructionLesson. Requires students to engage in using music terminology to express their opinions about musical compositions.

Why the Listening Guide works:
♩ The Listening Guide gives students the vocabulary to discuss musical elements.
♩ Students will discover that the artist who performs a piece is not always the artist who wrote it.
♩ Students will recognize different tempos and use appropriate vocabulary to identify them.
♩ Students will listen for the instrumentation of a piece and recognize different timbres.
♩ Students will use words to describe musical moods.

How to use this resource:

Here are the two options I use:

♫ Option 1: We listen to a pre-selected musical composition as a class while filling in the Listening Guide (Page 1). After listening, we discuss our findings as a class and then listen again to confirm/debunk what we’ve discussed. It helps if students watch a video of the performance at the end. This will help them confirm their guesses about instrumentation and maybe even mood!

♫ Option 2: We have 10-12 music centers for the students to rotate through. Each of the centers requires the students to complete a different music-learning activity. I use the Listening Guide (Page 1) at the Music-Listening Center. Students must complete the Listening Guide before they rotate to the next activity.

Materials
♩Recording of a pre-selected musical composition (A) for teacher to use during the Anticipatory Set and the Guided Practice portions the of the lesson.
♩Recording of a pre-selected musical composition (B) for students to listen to during the Independent Practice portion of the lesson.
♩Copies of the Listening Guide (Page 1) and Listening Guide – Vocabulary (Page 2). Pages 3 & 4 are optional.
♩Writing utensils (if using this resource as a Music-Listening Center).
♩Optional: Video recording of the pre-selected musical composition for the reflection portion of the lesson.
