Mind Map of My Music: 1st Draft

I've recently been exploring the use of mind maps for my students as an alternative form of note-taking and idea organization. Constructing a mind map is also an engaging activity to participate in yourself! Below, you can view a rough draft of my musical mind map. I constructed this map from memory. It simply a list of musical artists I've listened to. For the next draft, I will be adding in visual images and organizing the artists by feeling and genre. For now, the handwriting is sloppy and the artists are generally randomly laid out. I chose to box in "core" artists that I consider foundational in my life. Of course, everyone's list would look different. Once the final draft is ready, I'll be sure to share it here.
