These three Listening Quizzes from Musical Contexts challenge pupil's knowledge to correctly aurally identify music from the three main periods of music history in the Western Classical Tradition: Baroque, Classical and Romantic.
Each of the Listening Quizzes contains an MP3 audio file of 10 edited musical extracts, along with a pupil answer sheet and teacher's notes, track listings, answers and discussion.
As only some of the musical extracts in each quiz correctly belong to a specific musical period, an optional stretch and challenge activity includes challenging pupils to place the 'odd musical extracts out' into their most suitable musical period: Baroque, Classical, Romantic or 20th Century.
These Listening Quizzes will form an excellent revision aid for GCSE Music pupils preparing for the Listening Examination or as a 'step up to AS or A-Level Music' when looking at the Western Classical Tradition. They can also be used in Secondary/KS3 lessons when exploring music of a certain period and can easily be adapted into shorter DOITNOW or Exit Quizzes with a simple: "Hands up if you hear a Baroque/Classical/Romantic piece" to test knowledge and understanding.
The Identifying Musical Periods Listening Tasks is available as a ZIP file upon purchase containing PDF and customisable and editable Word (.docx) versions of pupil and teacher sheets and MP3 audio files.
