Synopsis

Listening to Music: History 9+ Recordings of Music from Medieval Times to the Twentieth Century with Activities for Listening, Performing and Composing by Helen MacGregor

With this text, teachers can give children both an overview of music history and close-up, hands-on experience of performing and composing through the ages. The music is set within its social context and is linked with the study of historical topics such as Tudors and Stuarts, Victorians and World War II. The approach should be accessible to all, requiring no music reading ability. Photocopiable material is included along with supplementary recordings supporting the activities.
