Listen and Appraise

Explore the piece by listening and responding to it. Think about these questions (or make up your own!) and make a mood board, poster, documentary interview or something else in response!

  1. Which instruments can you hear?
  2. What style of music is this? What makes you think that?
  3. How old do you think this piece of music is? Why?
  4. What is the structure of the piece? (if’ it’s a song, does it have verses, choruses, etc.)?
  5. How does this music make you feel? Why?
  6. What does the music make you think of? Why?
  7. If the music was a story, what would the story be? Can you write the story?

Music Technology

Create a response to the song using music technology. You could use any resource such as GarageBand or Ableton. There is a wealth of online resources that you could use.

See our list of online resources available and send us your work!
