Rhythm Dictation, Holiday Style

This idea is from: http://singanewsongmusic.blogspot.com/2009/11/rhythm-dictation-christmas-style.html

Ornament Rhythm Dictation

At her website, she has how she uses this. I think it’s great! You could also use this with other holiday songs or poems that you are using. You can use the ornaments as a template for students to create their own “B” sections.

For instance:

  • Sing the Chorus of Jingle Bells
  • Create a B section consisting of words related to the Holidays
  • Notate the words
  • Allow students to play the notation/words using jingle bells
  • Perform ABA!
