OCR GCSE Music - Concerto Through Time - Comparison Lesson

OCR GCSE Music - Concerto Through Time - Comparison Lesson

Depending on how quickly your students work, this could be one or two listening lessons. This is the final lesson which follows on from my lessons on Baroque, Classical and Romantic concertos which are also for sale. The first activity is a card sort. I photocopied the table blank onto different coloured card and the answer table onto matching colours and cut all the answers out. The students had to arrange the answers ontop of their blank table. I have repeated this in other lessons as they just get quicker at doing it and its a good revision tool. Once they have done this they copy out (or you could hand out complete tables) to have in their folder. The listening activity covers a concerto from each period of time, and the final question is a comparison paragraph question, similar to what would appear on the listening exam.

OCR GCSE Music - Concerto Through Time - 2 lessons on Romantic Concerto

OCR GCSE Music - Concerto Through Time - 2 lessons on Romantic Concerto

These are 2 listening lessons on the Romantic Concerto. They would ideally follow on from my lessons on the Baroque Concerto and the Classical Concerto which are also up for sale. The first lesson (titled Lesson 6) is all about Tchaikosky's Piano Concerto No 1. The whole lesson focuses on the 'Describe the Features' question on the listening exam that many of my students struggle with as they think it requires complicated answers. Hopefully they way i have taught this has broken it down so students understand even basic answers are correct. The second lesson (titled Lesson 7) covers the Rachmaninov Piano No 2 and Dvorak's Cello Concerto. There is a card sort activity and the listening questions also include a fill in the blank notes that would appear in the listening exam. All answers are provided and the powerpoints are easy to follow. If you need more guidance please comment. Also for sale is a comparison lesson on all three periods of time.
