We did a brainstorming activity as a review for their listening test. Students would list everything they know about Romantic Music. Their answers ranged dynamics, composers, different musical forms etc. However, when we placed all the headings on the white board, it was a complete picture and the students bounced their ideas off each other to complete this ‘picture’. Next students heard 2 ‘unknown pieces’ from this era, and had to circle all the elements or observations on the board that would be relevent to the pieces that they heard. It was nice to see students applying their own brainstorm to the pieces of music that they hear to conclude that it is Romantic Music.
