Whether you are planning a summer group class, or just looking for fun activities for this laid-back time of the year, hopefully you can find some ideas that you can use with your students!
- Patriotic Group Class Lesson Plan : I do some variation on this lesson plan with my students each summer, and it is always lots of fun! We learn about an American composer, listen to a famous patriotic piece for orchestra, and play an ensemble piece.
- Patriotic Name That Tune : Great for group classes or as a private lesson activity! This packet contains 3 levels of patriotic song excerpts for sight-reading and ear training fun.
- Patriotic Ear Training Challenge : This worksheet walks students through the process of playing "My Country 'Tis of Thee" by ear.
- The Star-Spangled Banner : An elementary piano solo version of the American national anthem, including lyrics!
