The Music Quest: Introduction

The Music Quest  focuses on discovering the wonders of our musical universe. Visit it for a musical question—a description and hints about a mystery composer, musician, instrument or musical excerpt.
The Music Quest was written  by former Teachers Network Web Mentor Kristi Thomas, a teacher at  William F. Halley Elementary School Fairfax Station, Virginia.


Enter into a search that will take you on a journey through the world of music!  Join us for  a musical question—a description and hints about a mystery composer, musician, instrument or musical excerpt. Test your personal or class expertise as you seek to solve the musical mystery. Check back a week later to find the answer. 

Make this quest a weekly part of your classroom activities, or a chance for individual students to improve their musical knowledge. Help your students develop their research skills as they discover ways to find the answers. Feel free to print the question page and distribute it. Explore the vast musical landscape of the Internet, find the musical reference books in your library, or simply find some musical experts. The questions will vary in difficulty, and will cover a wide range of musical topics of interest to students of all ages. Some current events, some instruments, some musical examples, some composers, some great musicians—The Music Quest will surprise you. Print the answers, and keep a notebook of what you have discovered.
