Today I am posting the link where you can find all my Thanksgiving games and worksheets. There is a fun music bingo game there if you have groups between now and Thanksgiving. I hope you enjoy some of these.

If you’re a long time follower of this blog, you can find some legacy material in “Older Free Resources.” However, as time permits, I update the old material and move it to “Newer Free Resources.” If you still can’t find what you want, the fastest way to find it is to do a Google search with my name and the name of what you want. An example is: Susan Paradis Thanksgiving Bingo.
I have a lot of easy sheet music that can be used for Thanksgiving on my website. All of these are primer (beginning level and on the staff in 5-finger position) unless noted. They are short and can be used for sight-reading. Some have duets and can be used in programs. These are all free downloads I made for my students. You don’t have to sign up or subscribe to anything to enjoy them. I use these to remind students why we celebrate Thanksgiving and how much we have to be thankful for.
Every year I write a piano trio for my students to play at their December group lesson. They are always fairly easy so that busy students can learn them quickly and have a lot of fun with them. Older students can sight read them and less experienced players can practice them in advance.
Today I am adding my piano trio arrangement of Jingle Bells for Three (17 pages $7.99) to the store section of my website. This is a studio license, so a single teacher may print unlimited copies each year. Buying trios digitally allows the music file to include scores in various configurations so the teacher can print they want. This file includes individual parts, a teacher’s (conductor’s) score, a traditional piano trio score, and the cover.
Jingle Bells for Three is really easy because I wanted something for my youngest group. We started practicing it in November and the group lesson was in December. They were really proud of themselves. I had a few students who had just started, so they provided the jingle bell accompaniment. I had some families use it for their Christmas family gatherings. I even have parents who read a little music come in to the lesson for an impromptu rehearsal. It is such a joy to play together just for the fun of it!
I recently made some handouts for the changes in the TMTA theory test. The first one here is for 3rd grade. The other two are some big changes in the 4th grade test. These basic theory concepts can be used for all music students, even if they don’t take a formal theory test. Click on the link below the image to print the tests. These can also be used on an iPad. Let me know if you find any mistakes!
