Music Has an Extra Element of Fun during the Winter Holiday Season

Music class—always a time of creativity —has an extra element of fun during the winter holiday season. As elementary music teachers continue building students’ knowledge of rhythm, tempo, form, pitch and musical notation through singing, playing instruments and movement, lighthearted pieces from the Nutcracker as well as timeless favorite like "Let it Snow" add excitement and color, like the festive sprinkles on a holiday cookie.
