I can give reasons for personal preferences in music.
I can categorize a variety of examples by genre and style.
1 Genre Listening Activity
Read the instructions together.
15 examples will follow.
These are Safeshare links.
If the Safeshare links don't work, search internet and choose alternate selections from YouTube.
Play the example and give students time to fill in their rating and a brief note as to why they gave it that rating. If they think they know the selection, artist or genre, write it in. If not, leave it blank. Do as many examples as you have time for but remember to leave time to go back and fill in the blanks. Have fun!
