Music theory worksheets

I LOVE music!! My favorite subject in school was choir. To say I love to sint may be an understatement); and I  am a VERY proud Alto (although I sang Tenor when needed).  I also play the flute and dabbled with the piano, guitar, trumpet, and clarinet. Can you tell I love music?  So it should be no surprise that I want my kids to not only love listening to music, but appreciate it as well. Help kids learn to love music and understand how to read music, clap rhythm, what notes are on the bass and treble cleves, the instruments in an orchestra for kids, dynamics, and so much more with this fun introduction to music for kids. We’ve included music theory worksheets and hands on matching games and music activities to make laerning about music FUN!

Music Picture Books for Kids

There are so many fabulous books to teach kinds about insruments, the orchestra, and music! Our favorite is Tubby the Tuba which includes a listening CD with fantastic music!

              

Make Music with Kids

One of the best ways to teach kids about music is to actually MAKE music. Let kids learn to love music by experimenting with different DIY musical instruments, playing instruments, etc.

Music History For Kids

We have worked through Color the Classics. This program is AMAZING!! I HIGHLY recommend it whole heartedly (nope, I do not get any money or even a discount for saying so =-)  You get a coloring book with about 6 illustrations per composer and a CD. The idea is that you:

  1. Read the short page of information about the illustration as your child looks at the picture
  2. Your child colors the illustration while listening to music composed by that composer.
  3. The multi-sensory experience will help your child retain more of what he’s learned because he is hearing information, coloring illustration about the information, and hearing the music all at the same time. By the time you finish 6 lessons hearing the musical style & learning new facts about the composers life each time your child will retain much of what they learn.

At library story time the other day we looked up and announced to me that the music playing in the background was Tchaikovsky. He was right, the librarian was impressed, and I was so thrilled!!

There are 6 books in the series:

{$19.95 for the book & ~60 minute CD) – We are completing 1 book + some Christmas + some Patriotic Classics each year for a 4 year rotation

  • Godly Composers I – Vivaldi, Bach, Handel, and Haydn
  • Composers II – Telleman, Mozart, Mendelssohn, and Dvorak
  • Composers III –  Beethoven, Strauss,Jr., Brahms and Tchaikovsky
  • Hymns Writers – Luther, Watts, Wesley, Newton, and Crosby
  • Patriotic Classics – Yankee Doodle, The Star Spangled Banner, My Country ‘Tis of Thee, Battle Hymn of the Republic, and America the Beautiful
  • Christmas Carols – 13 Christmas Carols

You are allowed to make photo copies for use with your own children!! So I can use this with all my children

Do you have a great resource I missed?! I’d love to know about it!! And as always, I truly appreciate you taking the time to comment and let me know if you found this helpful.

Kids will love these clever, free printable Piano Practice Sheets. Your young musician will have fun keeping track of how long they have practiced the piano, guitar, flute, trumpet, or other musical instrument as they hole punch the musical notes!

Kids will trace key terminology, color pictures, practice making notes, and learn about music.

  • This is an awesome lesson plan idea. I want to make one for our music teacher at school. Thank you for sharing. Do you have the directions on how to put it together? Thank you and have a blessed weekend,

  • All your free downloads are IMPOSSIBLE to access-that might turn people off your great suggestions-I’m sure there is a way to make them more user( busy parents) friendly

    • I’m so sorry you are having trouble. I am very open to suggestions =) Ads are a necessity as they pay for groceries on our table while keeping my materials free for families …. I’ve tried to make it predicable – all downloads are at the bottom, under the terms of use, and they are a text link that says >> Download <<. But if you have suggestions, I am all ears =)

  • Beth, Thank you so much for sharing the free lesson plans. I am super excited to use these next year, as we are a homeschool family. You did a fantastic job!

  • These are a wonderful resource! As a musician myself, and a homeschooling mom, I want my kids to grow up learning music. Thank you!
