A Christmas Music Game Min-Unit that is both engaging and curriculum-based -
Enough no-prep lessons to fill your December music classes

This unit focuses on how making specific choices (tone colour, melody, dynamics, etc) within a composition can evoke specific feelings within a listener. “What makes Christmas music SOUND like Christmas?” is the question we’re trying to answer – and what better way to do it than through the scores of popular Christmas films?

This mini-unit is written for junior grades and therefore it assumes that the students already have a working knowledge of timbre, melody, tempo, dynamics, and articulation. If your students are a little rusty on these terms, it serves as a great opportunity for some review.
