Here's a list of questions that students can ask themselves as they listen. Write them on the board before the videos are introduced.
What is the tempo (speed) of the piece: Adagio, Andante, or Allegro?
Is the melody played by an instrument or is it sung?
It the song performed acapella or with accompaniment?
Some songs are written to different melodies. Is the melody the same in all three recordings?
What is the style of each performance? Ask the students to choose adjectives from a list that you provide: peaceful, funny, graceful, etc.
