Women Composers Bingo 2022

Are you up for a listening challenge?

I’ve had a bingo template sitting in my Canva templates folder for a few months, and hadn’t decided what to do with it until I saw an Instagram post from a flute teacher friend who used a bingo game as a listening activity with his students.

It’s Women’s History Month, so what better time to explore some lesser-known works by women composers? You never know – you just might find your new favorite piece!

Flute Music by Women Composers

Bingo board with white text on a dark teal background, with each square listing the title and composer of a classical music composition by a woman composer. The pieces are flute solos and chamber music featuring the flute, and the title reads: "Women Composers Bingo 2022: Flute Music by Women Compsers."

Let’s Play!

This is a great activity for a flute studio or music history class, whether as a part of a group activity or as an individual listening assignment for students. 

I’ll also be posting clips of audio recordings and video links in my Instagram stories throughout the month.

To view the full playlist, click the three lines in the top left of the video or the link in the title above the video.

Additional Bingo Boards & Playlists

Following the 2024 Women’s History Month theme of “women who advocate for equity, diversity, and inclusion,” this playlist highlights chamber music & flute solos by women composers from underrepresented demographics in Western classical music.

A mix of award-winning compositions, flute solos, and other notable works by the top women composers of the Romantic era and early 20th century.
