Listening and responding is one of my favourites for music lessons. Children can respond to music in so many ways!
Drawing (draw what you think of when you hear the piece of music)
Create a graphic score
Writing about it (how does the music make you feel/write a story based on the piece of music)
Below you’ll find a selection of pieces that I’ve used myself or other teachers have recommended for listening and responding (perfect for distance teaching and learning)
Please note – some of the videos for these pieces of music may not be suitable for your class. I’ve included them as I feel the music is great/good discussion points/good for comparing/contrasting but teacher discretion is advised.
