Every music teacher needs a 'stand by' bank of music comprehension tasks!  For those moments when instant 'music' work is needed in inclusion/exclusion rooms and circumstances, for that last minute room change where there is no music equipment or IT, for those awful 'silent' music lessons during exam periods or even for last minute emergency music cover.


The History of Music Western Classical Tradition Comprehensions from Musical Contexts provide 5 x double-sided A4 comprehension tasks on Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque, Classical and Romantic Music through Music History.  Each comprehension task features 1.5 pages of text, supported with images and illustrations, together with a range of questions to answer, based on the information and facts within the text.  All of the comprehensions can be completed simply with pens/pencils and paper/books.  


The Musical Contexts History of Music Western Classical Tradition Comprehensions pack is available to download upon purchase as a ZIP file containing the five separate activities as both customisable and editable Word files (.docx) and PDFs (.pdf) - ideal for instant 'print, set and go' situations!
