Product Description
This is a self-guided internet research project which aims to introduce students to a wide variety of musical genres. Encourage your students to listen to things they may not have heard of before.

This project was inspired by the website EveryNoise.com which contains a map of every type of musical genre its web crawler could find. Clicking on a genre plays a short example of that type of music. Clicking on the arrows next to the genre name displays a map of many example artists/songs to represent that genre.

The steps of the project are:
♫ Go to http://everynoise.com to view their genre map.
♫ Select 5 different genres/sub-genres from different areas of the
page - this will give you a sample of the wide-spectrum that
exists in our musical world.
♫ Listen to 5 different examples of each genre and describe what
you hear in the words, instruments, etc.
♫ Research each genre you picked to learn what defines it. You
may use Wikipedia, http://www.musicgenreslist.com/ or
another site.

The download contains the following pages:
1. Instructions and list of student-selected genres
2-6. Worksheets to guide listening and research
7. Reflections and conclusions questions to sum up the experience
8. (Optional for before starting project) Questions for introduction of genres
9. (Optional) Student/Teacher survey - plan how to collect data, present in charts or graphs
