Activities

  • Repeat marks
    • Play a piece that uses repeat marks and see if students can spot what happened
    • Ask students to highlight or circle the repeat marks in pieces they play.
  • Marches
    • When a student comes across a march start by marching out a pulse (you may need to discuss what a march is if a child doesn’t know).
    • Talk about what the characteristics of a march are, and how what features of the music help it sound like a march (rather than a waltz for example).
