Major and Minor Music

Major and Minor Music

Use the playlist below as the base for this simple major/minor listening activity. As you listen to the music, have students indicate whether the music is in a major or minor key. They can do this by:

  • Giving a thumbs up (major) or down (minor)
  • Drawing a smiley or sad face on a white board
  • Independently by writing their answers on a sheet of paper

This is also a great activity:

  • To add to the end of class when you have just a few minutes of extra time left
  • To use as a small quiz for major and minor listening
