Fun & quick music lessons for the summer season of June through August (taken from the full course "Music Lessons for Holidays & Special Days")
SUMMER Music Lessons for Holidays & Special Days online course:
Music is such a part of our lives and can really help us prepare for the holidays we want to celebrate throughout the year. Learn about, listen to, and do activities with various songs and music that relate to summer holidays such as Flag Day, Father's Day, and Harry Potter's Birthday (not to mention Juneteenth and Independence Day!). Also included are fun music lessons for special days such as Shark Week, Global Beatles Day, National Video Game Day, and First Day of Summer!
Each of the 13 lessons includes:
- Information about the holiday or special day
- Videos of the music to listen to/ watch
- At least one printable
- An online quiz
Note: SUMMER Music for Holidays & Special Days is aimed mostly toward Americans since several of the holidays and special days included are uniquely American. All lessons are taken from the full course Music for Holidays & Special Days. If you already own it, you don't need this one.
