KS2 Music: Classic and Inspiring

(Engaging KS2 Music revision quizzes to teach students in Year 3, Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6)

Music is an enchanting subject. The notes, the drums, the crescendos - we love every second! But we know it can also be tricky. In fact, trying to distinguish between different pieces of music is sometimes like trying to count the spots on an energetic Dalmatian puppy. Worry not, for we are here to conquer your music queries. We might not be able to teach you to sing (that’s all on you) but we can help you with your musical knowledge.

A few years ago, the BBC promoted some fantastic pieces of music in the hope they would inspire young people and give them an introduction to the world of classical music. There are ten different pieces and collectively they are called (surprisingly) ‘Ten Pieces’. In these Ten Pieces there is something for everyone. Fast music, slow music, dance around your house music, the lot!

So what exactly do our quizzes cover?

We scratched our heads and we thought, ‘The little Einsteins would love to learn all about the composers and the history of music’. And because we’re so kind, generous and clever (if we do say so ourselves), we’ve put together some toe-tappingly good quizzes on composers and the history of music. There’s also the odd quiz on different instruments and performing. You know, so you don’t try to get up on stage and try to play a wonderful classical tune on a cheesegrater.

Put simply, if you complete all our KS2 Music quizzes, you’ll be clued up and ready to impress. Music lessons will feel easy-peasy when you know all the musical terms and even better if you know the history of music. We promise to teach you in a way that won’t make you snore and we actually think you’ll like learning with us. Our quizzes are a new and exciting way to learn stuff and we’ll show you how with our music quizzes.

You’ll all be musical geniuses in no time.
