10 Genres of Metal – Electric Guitar Subtleties

Wow I wish I could play electric guitar!

This is a good video to show intermediate students to keep them engaged. Also to great video to work on listening sensitivity, i.e. Help students sharpen skills for making judgments and assertions about music in cultural contexts. Same skill applies if I were to ask you to identify a baroque piano piece from a classical piano piece.

Lesson ideas: ask what exactly distinguishes each genre. He’s using the same tempo, same instrument, same timbre, same “energy”…what changes? How do the genre names relate to the sounds he was making? Do they actually? And why? How did each genre make you feel?

It also will just get kids excited about making music. (At least that was my reaction)
