In today’s Qtorial – a weekly series of lesson & activity ideas from Quaver’s Marvelous World of Music – we invite the Venue Maestro back for a quick tip!

A tip from our Venue Maestro on the Matching Game in Quaver’s Pop Venue:

When your students sit down to play the matching card set game, I recommend starting with easiest level for a couple of reasons:

  1. to familiarize your students (and yourself) with the game
  2. to help the students get acquainted with the auditory innovations of pop music.

This will help with the fact that most students will only recognize the mp3 player and compact disc at best!

You might consider bringing in examples (a 45 record, 8-track, cassette tape, etc.) to the classroom so the students can hold some of these archaic forms of media! As your students progress through “medium” and “hard” card sets, faces of iconic pop music artists will be featured. Perhaps have samples of songs from these artists to play during the game or when the game is over so that the student can put a name and a face with a song.
