High and Low Music Theory Worksheet for the Young Child

This free printable music theory worksheet teaches the concept of high and low to the young child.  High and low is important as it is a fundamental music concept that should be grasped at an early age.  Music consists of high tones and low tones, so this worksheet teachers how to recognize patterns getting higher or getting lower.  This is ideal for early childhood beginners or young students who are just starting out on their music instrument. 

101 Rhythm Instrument Activities: for Young Children

Alternatively, if you wish to purchase books to help teach rhythm, I recommend the following book to introduce rhythm to young children.  The activities in this book bring music into the classroom and offer ways for children to participate in the music experience, using rhythm sticks, sand blocks, bells, shakers, and more. Children make the sound of the ocean waves using shakers, pretend to be a train using sand blocks, create a rainstorm with rhythm sticks and perform circus tricks with jingle bells. Plus, they learn to play the instruments along with their favorite songs.

101 Rhythm Instrument Activities is perfect for parents, early childhood teachers and music teachers who work with toddlers through age six.  Go to 101 Rhythm Instrument Activities: for Young Children.


The instructions read: Circle if the patterns are getting higher or getting lower.
