Short (1-4 activities)

In this lesson learners will practise their technical listening skills enabling them to confidently apply music-specific language. Students will use their technical listening to critically evaluate film music including clips from La La Land (2016) and Jaws (1975).  The Technical Listening activity sheet is carefully designed to scaffold their learning and the session concludes with the option to watch an additional clip and complete careers-focused home-learning.

Updating our resources

We have developed a large catalogue of educational resources since launching in 2013, and some references and terminology will inevitably have dated as society and language evolves. We are aware of this and will be updating resources when our production schedule allows.
