In the classroom, classical music can be an exciting learning tool. Music not only has the power to stimulate the mind, enrich the heart and soothe the soul; it can also help you meet educational objectives and learning outcomes.

Students will ("I can") identify same and different sections of a listening map visually, then aurally, using a listening map. Students will become familiar with a troika. Younger students (grades K–2) will move to the music in a small group of three people. Older students (grades 3–5) will learn the dance steps to a Russian troika folk dance, using a group of three people.

The lesson plans were written by Dr. Kay Edwards, Professor and Chair of Music Education at Miami University in Oxford, OH.

In addition to Orff Level III certification, she has special training in Kodály and Dalcroze pedagogies.
