The month of March is here, bringing St. Patrick's Day! Below is a roundup of 5 activities from the interwebs that you might enjoy using with your music students. You might print them and use them in lessons, send them home as homework, or send links to one or more in your studio newsletter (maybe offer a special prize for students who complete them). Check below the picture for the ideas.
Here they are...
1. Of course, you can discuss the Irish harp! Check out this article from Harp Spectrum.
2. Ear Training and Improv offers several free St. Patrick's Day printable worksheets.
3. A fun worksheet for matching words with their rhythms from The Sweetest Melody.
4. A neat game for practicing rhythms from Sara's Music Studio.
5. About.com has a downloadable Irish harp coloring page.
