Soundtrack of my Life – Musical Genres Project


This Soundtrack of my Life – Musical Genres Project will be sure to engage your students! This resource includes both a ready-to-print package AND a Google slides version of the project.

Students will be asked to:

  • Choose a genre of music to research and explore in greater detail, including place of origin, time period, key musical characteristics and notable artists
  • Create a playlist of songs that represent the chosen genre of music
  • Choose 1 song from their playlist to analyze and describe the elements of music
  • Create cover art, a visual representation of the music they hear

This project is a great way for students to analyze the elements of music and apply their understanding of musical genres by exploring a musical genre of their choice in greater detail.

A rubric is also included for assessment, with a success criteria checklist that students can refer too while completing the assignment and before they submit.
