How to Use Spring Music Worksheets in your Studio

Spring is in the air, and these fresh spring music worksheets are just what you need to get the chill out of the air and the warmth back into your studio!

Everything teachers require to help teach young beginners essential skills are to be found in this incredibly economical bundle of 67 worksheets.

Here’s what you’ll receive in your instant download:

  • Spring note reading worksheets
  • Spring intervals worksheets
  • Spring music math worksheets
  • Spring piano keys music worksheets

All of the worksheets have color or black & white printing options, and answer keys are available for everything.

This means that besides using them as teacher-directed activities, these spring music worksheets could be used in online music lessons, with the parents participating by marking the worksheets or assisting their children (since they’d have the answers).

Students will love learning about all of these concepts due to the carefully designed pages.

Not only is there just one concept per page, but there is also enough “white space,” making each page look even easier.

As an added cuteness bonus, each page is adorned with an adorable spring gnome and an attractive border of green, blue, pink, yellow, or purple (color print version).

Oh, how I wish that such a child-centered approach to teaching theory had been available when I was a kid!

Now let’s look at four ways to use this amazing bundle of spring music worksheets.

1. Use the Spring Note Reading Worksheets As an Incentive for Students to Complete the “Fun Stuff”

How to Use Spring Music Worksheets in your Studio Note Naming Worksheets

The first set of spring music worksheets contains 14 very engaging note-naming activities. The first four provide the building blocks for the rest in the set.

Once students have named line and space notes on the treble and bass clefs, they are invited to participate in a “Rainbow Notes Race.”

If you teach small classes in your studio or if you teach elementary school music classes, why not engage them in an actual race to see who finishes naming the notes the fastest?

The instructions say, “Name these treble/bass clef notes as quickly as you can!” thus inviting students to “race.”

You know your students best; perhaps racing isn’t what’s best for them. But even in private lessons, a game can be made out of these or any of the other remaining spring music worksheets in this set.

In other words, make it fun!

For example, in the very clever “Water the Music Garden” spring music worksheets, students get to draw a line to connect the watering can to the correct flower.

The watering can has a note on a staff in it, and the flowers in the middle of the page each have a letter name in them.

In my experience, students LOVE to do matching activities such as this.

There are also two beautiful spring color-by-note pages that students “get” to complete once they’ve completed all the rest of the worksheets in this set.

I suggest showing your students the “fun” pages just before you have them begin working on this set. The “fun” pages should be incentive enough, especially for students who love races, matching activities, and coloring! 🙂

Use dry erase markers and dry erase pockets to virtually eliminate printing costs, and use the worksheets over and over again.

2. Use the Interval Spring Music Worksheets to Teach and Engage Any & All Instrumental Students

How to Use Spring Music Worksheets in your Studio Intervals Worksheets

The next set of spring music worksheets provide review and encouragement in the following areas:

  • Identifying 2nds – octaves
  • Differentiating between harmonic and melodic intervals
  • Writing 2nds – octaves

Teachers of absolutely any instrument can engage their students in these interval learning activities, since no clefs are used, only notes on lines and spaces of a staff.

I especially love the “Cultivating Intervals” activity, in which students are to connect a spade (with intervals on a staff on each one), to the correct flower in the center of the page (each having a number in it).

Finally, in this set of 14 spring music worksheets, there’s also a color-by-interval page for them to complete.

Whether you teach privately in your studio, online, or in a classroom, these interval worksheets can be used for all instrumental music students!

3. Use Spring Music Math Worksheets As a Cross-Curricular Activity

How to Use Spring Music Worksheets in your Studio Music Math Worksheets

Do some of your music students like math?

Many of mine do, and they’ve mentioned it during their piano lessons multiple times.

For example, at the beginning of the lesson when I ask, “What fun or interesting thing did you do today?” often my students will say, “We did Math!” among other answers.

You can easily engage your math-loving music students of all kinds (piano, voice, trumpet, tuba, violin, etc.) with these beautifully designed, educational music math worksheets.

There are 24 spring music worksheets in this set. Each “title” (Addition Gardening or Subtraction Garden for example) includes two worksheets. There is one with only note values, and another with note and rest values.

Each “set” (e.g. all of the division worksheets) includes six worksheets that progress from easier to more difficult.

For classroom music teachers, I suggest consulting with your students’ math teacher to find out when the children are learning each of the four math functions (adding, subtracting, multiplying, & dividing).

Then, capitalize on their enthusiasm by introducing the same math concept but in musical form. Clever!

There is no doubt that your students will be more engaged in these music math worksheets when they confidently know this skill from their math classes.

In fact, they’ll be proud to show you, the wise music teacher, what they know! And their math teacher will be pleased with this reinforcement as well, all thanks to these spring music worksheets!

4. Review Piano Keys With These Spring Music Worksheets

How to Use Spring Music Worksheets in your Studio Piano Keys Worksheets

These fun piano keys worksheets are perfect for young students who are just starting out on their piano learning journey.

There are 15 worksheets in this set. Each creatively introduces students to essential concepts such as:

  • White keys
  • Black keys, including sharps and flats
  • Drawing notes on the staff

There are three adorable pictures of googly eyed bugs for students to color at the end of the set. They are sure to please!

For even more engagement, why not have a coloring contest in your studio?

Students could choose which one of these three lovely pictures to color, and then the teacher could outsource the judging to another music teacher friend.

Be sure to proudly display all the participants’ pictures in your studio for parents and other children to see, and provide a small prize for the winner.

This bundle of 67 spring-themed music theory worksheets is terrific for private lessons, group piano, for homework, for the sub tub, as a quick in-class review, and more!
