Name that Christmas Song

Total views: 2424

This is a pre-notation music file that allows students the ability to play and listen to a tune as they play. The pre-notation is based on alphabetic letters with dashes and spaces to indicate some differentiation of note values. As they play the tune, musical notation appears above the piano keyboard. My only complaint is there is no way to differentiate note values - everything shows up as a quarter note and all notes are written as sharps - no flats given in the notation. It would be a good springboard to talk about why note values are important in notation, as well as sharps vs. flats.

Christmas Tunes Adaptation

Loved your lesson! It took me just a few minutes to figure out how to use the keyboard (deleting notes when I hit the wrong key & speeding up the playback). It would be a nice addition if the keyboard had a rest key & you could designate the length of the note.

I used your lesson as a template for another Christmas name that tune with 5 songs. I also added pages after each keyboard page to use the Vote. I'll upload the variation as soon as I add your name to the title page to give you credit for your work. :-)
