Band from an Academic/Intelligence-based approach

One such lesson is a weekly listening lesson. Each lesson focuses on a different topic. We've studied tonality, texture, different styles of music (marches, English folk songs, etc.). I give the students a worksheet with information and questions they need to fill out when listening to the various musical selections being used to illustrate a certain topic. The main point is that if we continue to listen to the music we're attempting to perform and try to understand and be able to discuss in an intelligent manner the details of the music we're listening to, we'd be able to better perform the music in front of us and assess our performance.
My students don't necessarily look forward to these lessons, but in every class there are lessons that aren't fun but certainly beneficial.
