Creating Effective Music Listening Opportunities

thinkstock (2)In almost every culture music is meant to be a social and interactive activity. While we might listen to music on our own, older generations did not grow up with digital music that could be listened to at any time. Music was (and still is) mostly enjoyed in interactive ways. For example, at family gatherings around the piano, at live concerts, in dance halls, at weddings and other celebrations, or on a record player (digital music dock!) for all to hear. The following information sheets have been designed to help you determine how and when to use a playlist; how to design effective playlists and how to respond to deep emotions which may be the result of listening to music.

Please feel free to download these information sheets in English or French and share them.
