This easily adaptable set of resources gives you the tools to teach music concepts to different grade levels per your teaching needs. It’s a perfect Fall Lesson to bring together your pitch, melody, rhythm, creative movement and improvisation goals. It’s also a wonderful way to assess students.

Using a video to teach enables you to have smooth transitions in your lesson. The video provides the visual and aural cues as you guide students from playing the beat to tapping rhythms, singing solfege and finally singing the song.


Use the video over several classes to teach all concepts as students sing, play, improvise and experience creative movement. Finish with a Falling Leaf Ensemble where students move from one station to the other experiencing, rhythm, beat and creative movement-diagram included.

(I used this lesson K-4 because the students can practice note reading and creating and participating in the whole ensemble. And, they loved it!)
