Active Listening Strategies for the Elementary Classroom by Wesley Ball.
Music comes alive as children actively explore how the elements of music--pitch, duration, tone color, dynamics, tempo, texture, harmony, form and style—combine to create music. With reproducible listening maps, movement and activities, kids connect sight, sound, and movement in 14 wide-ranging works—from Vivaldi to Copland, Sousa's Stars and Stripes Forever to Benny Goodman's Stompin' at the Savoy.
Includes background on the composers, activities suited for different levels, and easy-to-use teaching plans based on the National Standards.
