“Ideas, hints and tips on varying up the Music Rounds at your trivia event to ensure that all the players enjoy the music round of your quiz”

As you can probably gather by now I am full of various ideas based on the vast experience I have acquired over the years as a quizmaster and trivia host so its nice to be able to share these idea with you. Thanks for the comments and suggestions and today we are continuing with the series on looking at how to make each show unique.

And indeed, today we are going to look at one of those areas which people often struggle with. We have actually looked at this issue before but we are going to go into a little more detail here and look at how you can avoid the plateau quizmasters often reach with this music round.

Remember, the whole benefit of having a music round within your quiz is to give everyone a chance to get points on the board. It helps to stop the “bookish” players winning everything, gives those not interested in Science and Geography etc something to do and always works as a good mid-quiz break.

I am first going to look at the main problem you face with this round and then look at hints, tips and ideas on how to make each show unique….

Making Each Show Unique – Varying up the Music Rounds – The problem

The problem with the music round is two fold. Firstly, it is very hard to pitch and you need to pitch it to your audience. If you are into 70’s rock bands but are presenting a quiz to a students then you need to research the recent music and bands they may have heard of. There is nothing worse than turning up to a quiz only to find that you the quiz master is playing songs from his own collection rather than ones people may genuinely know. More than any other round, if you are including music rounds in your trivia, then you need, no in fact MUST, play to your audience. Anything less and the round that is supposed to attract players will end up putting them off.
