Halloween Coloring: Witches, Black Cats, Goblins, too!

Trick-or-treat!  

We have a treat for you that won't cause cavities- it's a Halloween coloring page.

Our Red semester Let's Play Music students are singing about witches, black cats, and goblins, too in our song, "Halloween is Coming".  To help you remember those tricky words, we've got a coloring page filled with those sneaky ghouls.  All will try to frighten you (but they won't be able to, will they?). 

Extend Your Vocal Range

This treat has a little trick, too- we trick the students into working out their vocals with all those ghostly howls.  The voice is an instrument and students improve with practice.  For this song, they practice making the mouth, jaw, and throat shape that will help create better tones and reach higher notes.  Hint: yawn and pay attention to the position of those parts.  While holding that mouth-shape, we step our voice up and down with the melody of the song- an excellent exercise for voice control and pitch-matching.

Read and Compose at Home

All semesters of Let's Play Music students can enjoy more fun exercises for sight-reading on bells or piano.  Here are the same Halloween pals to download and cut out.  They're round so you can use them as notes on a homemade staff.  Make a major scale!  Create a melody for bells!  Quiz each other on steps, skips, and intervals!  And finally, have a safe and fun Halloween.
The 5 fat turkeys are already looking forward to Thanksgiving, so they snuck in there.
