An assignment I did with my music appreciation class. I came up with a list of 25 musician pairs that had similar styles; one of pair was an older (usually deceased) musician or group, and the second was a more modern popular musician. I paired Caruso with Josh Groban, Michael Jackson with Bruno Mars, The 4 Freshmen with the Pentatonix, etc. The worksheet has a section of questions about each artist, and a section comparing/contrasting the two. I can't vouch for what the students might find out about the included artists, but this is meant to be an assignment parents can (and should) help with if the students are younger.
