STANDARD: MU:Re7.1.E.Ia Apply criteria to select music for specified purposes, supporting choices by citing characteristics found in the music and connections to interest, purpose, and context.

TEACHERS:

Create a mock situation for your students. Choose a time period, ensemble type, composer, city, specific event and venue (preferably of a place you are visiting overseas). Ask your students to write down their criteria for selecting music based on this situation.

EXAMPLE SITUATION:

A group is performing during Lent at the Salzburg Dom during Mass.

STUDENTS:
