Music Blocks is a music appreciation podcast that spans genres, cultures and decades. It’s about human emotions and the sounds we use to express them. And it debuts this August.
Developed with input from educators and students, each episode runs about 5 minutes to fit easily into family time or classroom instruction. Every “lesson” explores a different emotion and is accompanied by a playlist and discussion questions to inspire more sonic exploration. We designed the show with middle schoolers and high schoolers in mind. But anyone, at any age, can listen and learn something.
Hosted by Luis Antonio Perez and Rebekah Romberg, Music Blocks is a production of Colorado Public Radio’s Audio Innovations Studio. If you love the show, have questions or want to tell us about how you’re using Music Blocks, please drop us a line: Hello@MusicBlocksPodcast.org.
