Strand: Aural Skills
Suggestions for use: Senior Cycle students could use this activity to revise musical concepts for the Aural Skills section of the Listening course. Pop music features quite often in exam questions. Students are asked to provide structural analysis, recognise textural differences and understand terminology such as backbeat, syncopation, countermelody, harmonic ostinato, melodic repetition and rhythmic sequence. They are also asked to compare different treatments of the verses.
