World Beat - Music in Cultures Worldwide Lesson Plan
In this lesson, students will research key aspects of the music of a variety of cultures. They will identify musical genres and styles of a selected culture, then select one representative musical genre to research. Students will identify and describe instruments used in that genre, the roles and places of musicians, and the functions music serves in the culture, recording their results in a Microsoft Excel matrix. In groups, students will compile comparative results from all cultures in a matrix. Finally, all students will participate in creating a class presentation using Microsoft PowerPoint to share how key aspects of music vary from culture to culture.
