Freebie Friday! More Color-by-Note worksheets

This worksheet reinforces finding C, D, and E on the keyboard as well as asks students to recognize quarter notes and half notes.


This sheet is a little more advanced. It asks students to recognize C, D, and E on the treble clef and recognize quarter, half, and whole notes.

I hope you enjoy these resources for your piano students. Please share and consider liking us on Facebook (link).

(Another) Free Music Math worksheet!

My kids love these so much!  Who knew they would be so into math?  I had a lot of success with the last one, but noticed that several students could use more review – particularly when it came to distinguishing the whole rest and half rest – so I made Round 2.

Like the original Music Math worksheet,  this worksheet one quizzes students on the values of quarter, half, dotted half, and whole notes as well as quarter, half, and whole rests.  To change things up a bit, this one threw in a little subtraction.

Hey Teachers! Check out these free music theory resources (Part I)

I’m constantly on the prowl for free downloads of basic music theory worksheets to supplement my students’ own theory workbooks.

Here’s my current list:

Fun and Learn Music:  This website has about 30 or so free worksheets geared for elementary students.  Areas include generic interval training, rhythm, whole steps/half steps, hand and finger recognition, flats and sharps, and note naming.  The note naming is useful because it is broken down into positions so you can assign students working on Middle C position worksheets that will specifically and only cover those notes.    Worksheets are available for print in color.  Only criticism is that the sheets have “FUN AND LEARN MUSIC” printed very large over the entire worksheet – it might prove vaguely distracting for some students.  Image

Opus Music Worksheets:  Has 12 free worksheets on beginning music theory.  Each worksheet has lesson in it.  These worksheets are more suited to the older learner as they are more dense and have no graphics or games – they are straightforward question – answer style.  I do however use these worksheets on occasion with my younger students where none other will suit.

Lawrence University Gene Biringer’s Home Page:  Worksheets appropriate to learn fundamentals, designed for use by college students.  In addition to basics, covers more advanced topics such as modes, transposition, identification of seventh chords, and identification of triads in major and minor keys.

Susan Paradis:  free resources designed for children.  Includes color graphics.  Also includes holiday themed worksheets.

piano teacher resources

Color in My Piano:  Has some really good stuff, but the website is organized in a way that makes it a little difficult to navigate.  Worth the trouble however.  You can even find a music instruments workbook that is really good for group lessons with young students.
