Musicology Activity (Bach – Fugue in C Major)

The musicological lesson will be based on introducing students to the life and times of J. S. Bach. Students will learn about his contribution to the Western Art Music tradition, his famous compositions and key ideas. An analysis of the fugue form will also take place in the lesson, as preparation for the aural activities.

As students become familiar with each of the structural sections of a fugue, an activity in which students can graphically depict each line of the fugue may be useful and fun.
