Use this site on a projector or interactive whiteboard to discuss and informally assess prior knowledge as you start your study of John Phillip Sousa. What is unique about the site is that it has audio of many of Sousa's compositions, which would be great to sample after a unit on his work. This would be extremely useful for history or music teachers.

Music or History teachers looking for music sources to supplement a lesson should look here first! Not only is there information to help teachers/students review - but there are resources that allow you to listen to the music being studied in each section. This could be useful in a lesson on the Harlem Renaissance, the 1920's, or even the Jazz age.

This is an absolutely fantastic site designed to provide exposure to the incredible variety of musical instruments played during the Middle Ages and Renaissance. Students and teachers can explore the unique appearance, structure, and sound of these instruments. Just click on an instrument's name to view it, read about it, and listen to a brief sound clip. Created by ensemble members of Musica Antiqua and Iowa State University, this site would nicely supplement an elementary or middle school unit on the Renaissance, serve as a resource for a music history lesson, or add greatly to a literary unit on Shakespeare's England that would include exposure to the music and instruments used in the Elizabethan theater.

tag(s): medieval (27), renaissance (34)

In the Classroom

Use this site as an activator or introduction on a unit about Shakespearean England. The information on the instruments offers more insight on the life and times being studied. Select some of the more interesting instruments and add their pictures and audio into your lecture to spice things up!

Here's a look at the history of Jazz in New York's Harlem, based on a remarkable photo of several dozen jazz greats. The site includes information on musicians, their music, their instruments, and how Jazz and Harlem came to be synonymous in the early twentieth century.

tag(s): jazz (15)

In the Classroom

The most usable portion of this site is actually the picture seen on the main page. Rarely are teachers going to need to go in on n in-depth exploration of Jazz, but the picture can be used in a visual discovery activity. Open the image on the interactive whiteboard or projector, and have students discuss what they observe, infer and predict about the image. There is a zoom tool that can provide greater detail. Guide the students towards why this image is significant, why someone would take it, how important Jazz was in this community, etc.

An incredibly well-organized site devoted to operas and other works by William Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan. Highlights include biographies of Gilbert and Sullivan, original illustrations by Gilbert and a series of "Web Operas." These contain all of the music from the operas as midi files along with full lyrics, dialogue, and pictures. Full librettos, clip art, plot summaries, and song scores are included for all fourteen G & S operas. The site also features a link to twentieth-century operas and plays in the style of Gilbert and Sullivan. This information would be a great resource for a high school drama/theater course and could also be useful in a study of British history, the art of writing parody (AP English), music history (operatic styles), or even illustrating.

tag(s): songs (52)

In the Classroom

Use the plot summaries as a study tool for a theatre or English classroom. Send students who are having problems grasping to events of the play to this site, where they can use the summaries as a study tool. Be sure to post the site on your wiki or webpage, allowing students to access the content both in and out of the classroom.
