Compose a Musical Story

This is a wonderful activity for 4th-8th grades. 

Based on the standards for composing, improvising, analyzing.

Use this activity in small groups, large groups, or independent. 

Students will apply their vocabulary knowledge to analyze Theme and Variations form.

They will determine how the composer used all of these terms to create each variation.

Then students will be challenged to compose their own variation to tell a familiar story.


Finally, students will critique the performance of each group. 


This 4-star rated activity includes lesson plans, Powerpoint, rubrics, and assessment.
