Fall 2019: Baroque Music Part I
BSM Students can now submit their listening reflections online via the form below. Simply click on the selections above to access the YouTube links and enjoy listening. Younger students can submit a few sentences about their impressions, thoughts, and anything they heard that they liked (or disliked!). Older students should submit a more detailed paragraph utilizing their "critical listening" skills in addition to their impressions of the piece. Include information about the composer - what do you know? What makes this piece significant? What is inherently "baroque" about this piece? What Baroque forms or techniques are used? We hope that this activity is an enriching experience for everyone!
