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.
