As the U.S. population has become significantly more culturally diverse, many music educators have acknowledged the necessity to implement culturally diverse musics in music curricula. One of the challenges in teaching culturally diverse musics is designing a balance between performing-based activities and other activities such as listening, improvising, and composing activities. Despite the importance of developing students' listening skills, listening lessons are still relatively deficient within the context of world musics. Therefore, we provide general music teachers with engaged listening strategies for implementing world music lessons in music classrooms. The lessons provided in this article are appropriate for upper elementary and secondary general music classrooms.
