Whenever the opportunity to engage my piano students with a theme arises, I pounce on it. Small changes in routines, exciting surprises and holiday activities capture their imagination. Which means I end up teaching more focused, motivated children (and that’s always a good thing!).
In previous posts we’ve shared Halloween-themed sight reading activities, theory printables and improv pieces. Today we’re adding to that goodie bag of fall fun with our composing printable “Black Cat Crossing”!
Black Cat Composing… Just Press Print!
Black Cat Composing is the perfect “week-before-Halloween” activity when your kiddos are wired and you are… tired 😉 Simply download the activity below, press “print”, and then let your piano students have a blast creating a mysterious masterpiece.
Be sure to tag us @teachpianotoday (across all social media platforms) in the photos you take of your piano students using our Halloween activities… we absolutely LOVE to see the pictures!
And, If They’re Begging For More Composing Fun…
If your students have been bitten by the composing bug then you’ll want to check out our resource “The Curious Case of Muttzart and Ratmaninoff”. This hilarious resource teaches basic composing skills such as motive creation, sequencing, retrograde and more with a laugh-out-loud adventure that has delighted students around the world!
