Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy Rhythm Play Along:
Practice quarter, eighth note, and eighth rest rhythm This rhythm play along from Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker is a fun piece for your students to study simple rhythms and ABA form. Music students love reading, chanting, tapping, and playing along with the festive celesta theme from Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy!
A Section slides with single eighth notes are included. (I use this play along after introducing single eighth notes with my Music Note Anatomy/Split Eighth Notes slideshow. Students understand the necessity of beaming eighth notes after seeing and reading the single eighth notes page!)
During the B section, students can improvise a snowflake dance with hands or whole bodies.
A slide labeling the ABA form is also included.
