Listening Lessons Unlimited


... when they are engaged and comprehend what they are hearing.

Children want to be engaged. They want to move, to dance, to make noise. If you introduce Classical Music through engaging, creative, FUN activities, your students will beg to “do it again!”

Music is organized sound.  When we break down the organizational principles underlying master works the complex is made simple.  Ironically, it is this simplicity that frees us to enjoy, explore, and comprehend the complexities of the whole. 

Active listening lessons engage the brain, the body, and the breath. These lessons are fun and stand alone in terms of teaching to the music curriculum -- with the added advantage of introducing composers and master works in a culminating listening experience.

Pre-listening activities will teach the structure, rhythm, melody, harmony, or expressive qualities of a piece through dance, movement, speech, song, playing instruments, mime, or body percussion.  The pre-listening activity teaches the brain and the body the music. This opens the ears to hear, the mind to critique, and the whole child to enjoy!



Memorize the music -

Then you can truly listen.
