Winter Music Lessons for Holidays and Special Days
Fun & quick music lessons for the winter season of December through February (taken from the full course "Music Lessons for Holidays & Special Days")
WINTER 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 which relate to winter holidays such as St. Lucia Day, Chinese New Year, and President's Day (not to mention Christmas and Hanukkah!). Also included are fun music lessons for special days such as Groundhog Day and First Day of Winter!
Each of the 12 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: Winter Music for Holidays & Special Days is aimed mostly toward Americans since many 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.
