Is There Anything You Do in Music Class that Students Take with Them when They Leave?
Teaching Music, v14 n5 p84-85 Apr 2007
In this installment of "Members Speak Out," the author discusses a game that teachers can play with their band and orchestra students. Called "Drop the Needle," it involves starting a musical recording in the middle and trying to determine what period it is from and who might have composed it. This game allows more experienced listeners to show off their "resume" of known pieces, while students who never listen to classical music get daily practice that helps them become discerning listeners.
