Middle School Music - Weeks Two and Three

Middle School Music Activities Board 

Developed by the TUSD Music Staff 

Every week, the TUSD Fine and Performing Arts Department will share a new activity board for our  at-home musicians. Make sure to share your music learning with your teacher and let them know if you would like more musical enrichment experiences! 


Pick two or more activities to do!  Share what you did with your teacher. 

Music Theory 
Look around your house and pick 10 different objects. Write name of those objects down. Then using the notes you’ve learned in class write down rhythms for those words.   
Example: kitchen table =       


Guided Listening 
Listen to a 2 different performances of the same piece of music. Who did you listen to and what did they perform? How were the performances the same?  How were they different? Which one did you like the best?  Write 2 paragraphs with your answers. Share with your teacher. 


Practice at Home 
Practice a short portion of any music. After playing/singing it one time, try to improve something using practice ideas your teacher uses in class. Send a recording of your practice session to your teacher if you can and share what you tried to improve.  


Music History 
Research the story behind The Star Spangled Banner and why the lyrics were first written.  Write 2 paragraphs about the history you discovered.  Listen to 2 or 3 performances of the national anthem.  How were the performances the same?  How were they different?  Which one did you like the best?  Share with your teacher. 


Musical Family Tree: List your relatives and then ask them what musical instrument(s) they have played.  Make sure to also write down how long they played the instrument and how old they were when they played. Do you see any patterns? Share with members of your family and your teacher. 


Think about the terms used in music to indicate speed (tempo). Write down at least five different tempo terms, define them in your own words, and then add an example of each tempo outside of the music classroom (in your house, outside, etc).  Share your responses with your teacher. 


Choose a specific establishment (shopping mall, law firm, doctor’s office, sports stadium, fast food restaurant, fine dining establishment) and imagine you were in charge of choosing the music for it. Explain how music can affect one’s mood. Explain what type of music you’ll use and why. 


Perform one of your pieces in 3 different rooms in your house. Describe in musical terms how the sound of your performance changed in the different rooms. In which room did you like the sound the best?  Why? Share recordings of your performances and your answers with your teacher.
