Music Memory: Grades 5-8
The focus of the Music Memory contest is an in-depth study of fine pieces of music literature taken from a wide spectrum of music genres to expose students to great composers, their lives and their music. In the course of preparing for the contest, students should be given the opportunity to describe and analyze the music, relate the music to history, to society, and to culture, and to evaluate musical performance.
Students will listen to approximately 20 seconds of up to 20 musical selections and identify the name of the major work, selection and the name of the composer.
To receive full credit for an answer, all information about the music selection must be completed as shown on the official list. Spelling and punctuation are considered in the grading of this contest.
