Adele performs for a small group of lucky fans at the Santa Monica Bay Woman's Club in Santa Monica, CA. Performing such hits as Rolling in the Deep and Someone Like You from 21 and Chasing Pavements from her Grammy winning album 19. British singer-songwriter Adele burst onto the international music scene with her precocious debut, 19, released when she was just that age, in 2009. The album won her a pair of Grammy awards including Best New Artist. But it was her sophomore smash, 21, again titled for the age of the young performer, that made her a legend: the first living artist since the Beatles in 1964 to have two titles simultaneously in the top five of both the UK singles and album charts. Dubbed timeless by Entertainment Weekly, the record is currently in its thirteenth week at no.1 on the Billboard 200.

It is necessary that students are able to develop aural skills by exploring, imitating and recognising elements of music including dynamic, pitch and rhythm.
