Critical Listening in Instrumental Music



Through listening and responding to several different video examples, by the end of this WebQuest students will have a better understanding of what a quality sound on their instrument is, and should have ideas on how to create this sound.  They also should be able to evaluate a performance based on tone, articulations, dynamics, phrasing, musicianship and other musical components.  Equally as important as learning to actively listen and evaluate music is communicating effectively what you are hearing and how it applies to yourself.  This skill will be addressed with the response activities in this WebQuest.

Tasks will include:

  • Watch a video and make a list of ways you can apply this knowledge to your playing
  • Watch 2 videos and compare and contrast using a Venn Diagram
  • Watch 2 videos and respond in essay form.
