Easy Music Cover Lesson

This is a great cover lesson that can be delivered by a non specialist. Designed for a room with computer access but could be adapted so that the “presentation” is a poster on A3. Students create a presentation on a song of their choice explaining the reasons why they like the song. Presentation gives a model to the students so they know what to write.
