Introduction Artist Activity

The recommended activities throughout this course are a fun and educational way to help fulfill the number of hours you need to earn your homeschool Fine Arts credit. These activities include listening to great artists, watching musicals, and learning about the music industry with interactive activities, ranging from simply written responses to self-recorded vocal performances:

    • ARTISTS: Individual singers or groups/bands that have placed multiple songs in the Billboard charts, spanning from the 1950’s to 2020’s.
    • MUSICALS/OPERAS: Popular musicals and operas, including both stage plays and film adaptations, spanning from the 1930’s to 2020’s.
    • DOCUMENTARIES: Music-related documentaries about popular artists, music history, and the music industry. Recommended documentaries and activities are included in the Homeschool Toolbox your parent has access to. Please speak with them to learn more about this option.
All recommended activities are optional! If you prefer to skip any of them, select “SKIP ACTIVITY” from the drop-down menu in the form below and click “SAVE” before marking the page as complete. You can return to a skipped activity any time later in the week or even during the school year.

ACTIVITY INSTRUCTIONS: Choose one of the artists below that you are not familiar with (ideally from a genre you don’t normally listen to) and listen to the entire album. Next, explain what qualities you like and dislike about the singer’s vocal style and delivery. Be sure to include specific songs or times within a song when relevant.

Pending your selection, this activity can add from 0:45 (45 mins) to 1:30 (1hr and 30 mins) towards your homeschool credit hours.
