Another favorite, Grieg's Piano Concerto in A minor. When I was a little girl I had a record album which told the story of "The Little Mermaid," and this was the background music. Unfortunately, it didn't say anywhere on the album what the music was, and it was several years before I stumbled upon the title. I was so glad to finally know what it was!
This listening lesson for Edvard Grieg's In the Hall of the Mountain King, from Peer Gynt, is a favorite with my second graders. The lesson includes an overview of the story, a listening map, and instructions for the active listening activity. Students love getting to act out the different parts in this story!There are also dynamic cards for a quick assessment and a listening log.There is no music provided due to copyright, but the music can be found easily online.
