Class Greeting

Hello class. 

Today, we will use the Google Doc linked below to discuss some basic music qualities that we need to be able to recognize. I will place you into small groups for this. Using your device and a pair of headphones, click the link below and listen to the music provided. You may pick them in any order, as long as all three get listened to.

After listening to them, fill out the rubric with your group, making sure to put your information in the correct place on the chart, as well as under the correct group name. After that is completed, we will discuss all of them as a class and compare and contrast our results.
