  • 2 or 3 songs of your choice. Try and make them different, not all from one band. Also make them different from other members in the group
  • Introductions – Your audience wants to know what the song is called, who is it by and why you like this music

As a small group you have been asked to host your own show about Music. Decide what music you want to talk about. Share your music choices with other members of the group. Let them listen to your music and hear what you have to say. Listen to music brought in by other members of the group and learn to appreciate their choices.
