What’s fun about Halloween music lessons? Why making spooky music, of course! Here’s an easy to use and adaptable activity for many grade levels. And it’s a Free Halloween Orff music lesson.
HALLOWEEN ORFF MUSIC LESSON
I made this activity simple to use because I wanted my students to do the creating and the music making.
It doesn’t have a song or even a chant-
But, your students could make one up to go along with the am chord and the spooky sounds.
This free Halloween Orff music lesson activity is all about students doing the work.
- Play Notes
- Play Melodies
- Play a minor chord
- Improvise a melody
- Color Coded Instruments
You can use many different instruments in this Free Halloween Orff music lesson.
Not only is this activity adaptable, but it’s a great review for rhythms.
The spooky sounds represent note values for whole, half, quarter, eighth and sixteenth notes.
PLAY THE NOTES
You’ll be able to help students learn how to play the am chord on many different instruments.
There’s also a fun way to play the song so that students learn how to play together in an ensemble.
PLAY THE RHYTHMS
I chose some “spooky” words to go with the rhythms, but you’ll be able to have students choose their own words.
The free Halloween Orff music lesson resource includes several copies of the activity.
Variations include the music, music with note names, music with lyrics and color note options.
Having these options will make it easy to have your students creating spooky sounds.
I’ve been encouraging my students to improvise melodies using the Am pentatonic scale.
But, you could have students improvise rhythms and movement patterns.
The important thing is for students to do the creating and music making.
