The teacher will play a piece of music from a genre and/or style period for the students. Then students will identify the types and qualities of the sounds (instrumentation, texture, dynamics, timbre). Students will analyze the technical elements of the work.
In the second part of this assessment, students will hear the same piece of music and will make a visual representation, write a piece of poetry, or write a short story that expresses the same qualities that are in the musical example.
This item has been voluntarily field-tested by Michigan teachers with a non-representative sample of students.
