Play instrumental music from different genres and ask them to study the same. Then, from the rhythm of the tune, the speed, and the musical instruments that are being used, ask them to identify the emotion that is being portrayed. For example, a happy song uses a whole different sets of instruments than those that are used in a sad song and the speed is quite fast and catchy, unlike the slow pace of sad songs. Keep in mind the age group that you’re dealing with when setting about to choose the music. Older kids can be introduced to varied genres and styles in this manner like jazz, rock, and classical.
