Free Halloween worksheet pack from Eartrainingandimprov.com!

I just happened upon this bundle from http://www.eartrainingandimprov.com/ in my inbox this morning.

It’s a great assortment of beginner music theory worksheets for children. I printed them all out and am going to assemble a worksheet packet that my students will work through up until Halloween. Kristin (the lady behind the packet) gives great suggestions for how to make these exercises extra fun for kids. I’m especially looking forward to the rhythm dictation worksheet called “Knock, Knock Trick or Treat.” If the student “knocks” correctly, they get the treat.  I know my students are just going to eat that up (literally and metaphorically.

Rhythmic dictation

Fun new ear training worksheet for practicing rhythmic dictation. Kids listen and then fill in the missing measures.

Anyway, serious thanks to Kristin.  Here’s a preview of some of the sheets and links to get them (click on image).

My students LOVE these kind of worksheets. I’ve shared a few of my own making, but these are really great:

My students often don’t get enough consistent practice drawing the treble clef sign and grand staff. It’s my recent resolution to focus on this more, so it’s great to have a Halloween-themed way to bring it to them this month!

Ear training, despite how vital it is, often gets put to the side in lessons – there’s just too much to teach in one hour, once a week. Definitely going to use this to make sure my students get a well-rounded music education.
