The holiday season is a busy time for both teachers and students alike. If the hustle and bustle of the holiday season is keeping your students from practicing as much as you would like, don't despair!
Today I am sharing a round-up of seasonal musicianship activities that you can use all month long to supplement your holiday lessons. Keep reading to see these fun (and FREE) activities that will have your students transposing, sight-reading, improvising, and more in holiday style!
Transposing is a great way to work on intervallic reading and ear training and to get students playing in a variety of keys. Challenge your students to see if they can play these holiday favorites in every key before Christmas break!
These fun worksheets are a sneaky way to get your students sight-reading and notating on the staff using a few favorite holiday tunes.
Use these worksheets to work on melodic and rhythmic dictation with students of all ages!
Help your students create their own holiday arrangements using these improv activities and lead sheets!
Challenge your students to play these holiday favorites with one hand alone! A great way to work on navigating the keyboard, playing one hand across both clefs, voicing the melody, and pedaling.
Looking for fun activities your students can do over their holiday break? Check out the "12 Days of Christmas" practice challenge, or help your students create a Christmas (or Winter) Repertoire List of pieces they can perform for family and friends!
