When you think of music, what comes to mind - a tune, a riff, a symphony? What about a song? Songs are without a doubt the most popular form of music and students in KS3 will study them. This quiz is based upon the requirements set for the final unit of the KS3 music syllabus - 'The Song'.
What is the difference between a song and a tune? Well, a song must include a voice! There are many types of song - ballads, which tell a story, folk songs, which are passed down from generation to generation, pop songs, created by musical artists for financial gain - the list goes on. A song may be accompanied by musical instruments, or it may be unaccompanied, as in the case of a cappella songs. But all songs, whatever their style, have words.
Have a go at this quiz to see how much you know about songs, their composition and their style. Take your time and read each question carefully before you pick your answers. And don't forget to read the helpful comments after each question. Good luck!
