Creative listening activities from a master music educator! These dynamic ideas invite students to experience, analyze, and reflect on an array of musical genres, including Motown, pop, rock 'n' roll, bluegrass, opera, Broadway, and film. Teacher preparation will be minimal as materials are few, and lesson planning is easy as Common Core and National Standards are listed on every page. Assemble your 12-song playlist online, and then explore three lessons for each song. With hits like Michael Jackson's "Thriller" and the Disney classic "Let It Go," music class has never been so much fun! Recommended for grades 4 and up.
