Music Activities | High School

Developed by C. Jurman, C. Miners, & E. Nolan


Perform

Perform a short recital for your family (one to three short pieces). Follow up with a self-evaluation of the performance. What went well? What would you have liked to do better? When you were preparing to perform, which practice methods worked?

Guess

Listen to a classical music radio station for at least 3 pieces. Try to guess as much about the piece as you can from what you can hear: when was it composed? By whom? Which era does it fit best? (Baroque, Classical, Romantic, Modern, other?) Why do you think it fits that era best?

Practice

Practice a short portion of any music, while focusing on one aspect of performance. What methods did you use to address that aspect? Were they successful? Send a recording of your practice session to your teacher.

 

Share

What’s your Coronavirus playlist? Create a list with at least 5 tracks you’ve been listening to. What do these songs mean to you during our isolation? Share your playlist and your answers.

Complete three activities this week. Submit a response for each activity you complete to your music teacher.

Collaborate

Perform a duet (or more?) with a family member, friend (online!), or with yourself. You can record your performance live or with an app such as Acapella. Your duet can be anything, involving any combination of “real” or found instruments. Send the recording to your teacher.

Interview

Interview a family member about music. Here are some sample questions you could use: What is your favorite type of music to listen to? When do you like to listen to music most?

Theory

Check out the lessons, exercises, and tools on musictheory.net

Go through the lessons on your own, or complete one of the challenges here: treble clef | alto clef | bass clef Go for the best time with 100% accuracy!

 

*When using the exercises, you can customize the clef and other settings  in the top right corner.

Record

Using any device, record the sounds in your house, yard, neighborhood, or natural area nearby. Note the time date of your recording. What is different in your recording because of the Coronavirus isolation? What is the same? What sounds caught your interest the most in this recording?
