For an easy lesson, pick a song from the Halloween music playlist, choose an Element of Music, listen and complete the listening analysis questions in the Elements of Music Bundle – done!

Or, if you prefer, choose a piece of music and have the students listen to it in small groups and work together as they focus on ONE Element of Music. Then bring the class back together and each group presents their answers and analysis of the music selected. This way the students learn from each other in a student centered classroom.
15 Classic Rock and Pop Hits for Your Halloween Playlist
This next Halloween Music Playlist is best suited to the Rock and Pop music fans out there. Not all of the lyrics in these songs are suitable for use in the classroom. You will need to make decisions about which songs are best to use for your students.

5 Halloween Songs to Compare
Now if you want to extend your students, try using some of the songs from this Halloween Music Playlist to compare and two different versions of some popular Halloween classics. Comparing two pieces of music is a great skill to master for all budding musicians. Through the analysis and comparison, they learn how different musicians and artists use the Elements of Music uniquely in their own interpretation of the same piece of music.
Completing these comparisons as an assignment or assessment will help your students develop their own analysis skills using the Elements of Music. This type of lesson or assessment is best suited to older students who already have a good handle and familiarity of the Elements of Music.
