Halloween and Fall Pre-reading Music

Halloween PreReading Music

I’ve finally completed some of my older pre-reading Halloween pieces in portrait format. When I did this last year with the on-the-staff Halloween and Christmas music, I thought it was going to be so easy to rotate them from landscape to portrait. Well, it was not as easy as I thought. I had to start all over from the beginning. The only things I didn’t have to re-do was my drawings. However, the benefit is that we can put the pages in a binder without having to take it out to play or awkwardly turning their binder sideways.  My parents and students really appreciate the portrait orientation, and I hope you do too! At the bottom of this page there is a link to the same pieces on-the-staff.

[Edited: I’m sorry to say I made some mistakes when I remade some of the pieces.  I’ve tried to fix them all. Thank you so much for letting me know!]

Updated Primer Halloween Music

Halloween Music

Finally! I’m running a little late, but I’ve remade all the primer level Halloween music into portrait orientation so it will fit in my student’s binders! Yeah! Now it is so much easier for them to open their binders and play. And hopefully, while they have their binders opened, they will actually look at what else I’ve assigned and practice it!

These are easy enough to be used by students who have just learned to read some notes on the staff.

Two of these pieces have an autumn theme with no mention of Halloween. Those two are See the Scarecrow and Peter, Peter, Pumpkin Eater. So if you have students who don’t play Halloween music, you can use these.

The music isn’t new, and if you’ve been using my site for years, I’m sure you have seen these before. What is new is the portrait orientation and I’ve updated the art in 3 of them. Some of these have duets and some don’t. It depends on how much room I had on the page.

This music is very short, except for Five Little Pumpkins. If you are having a Halloween recital, they can either play the piece twice, the second time in a different octave, or they can learn 2 or 3 of them and play them as a set. For those of you who are new teachers, the easiest ones have no skips, and I’m listing those first.

Some of you have been having trouble downloading my bigger files, so I am posting these separately. I hope your students enjoy the new portrait format of these pieces!

  1. Halloween Halloween Portrait
  2. See the Scarecrow Portrait
  3. Halloween is almost Here Portrait
  4. Once Year On Halloween Portrait
  5. Peter Pumpkin Eater
  6. Hey Mr Mummy Portrait
  7. Five Little Pumpkins Revised

Peter, Peter, Pumpkin Eater – On the Staff

Peter, Peter Pumpkin Eater

Question of the Week

Dear Susan,

Will you be posting a version of Peter, Peter, Pumpkin Eater with notes on a staff? I would like to teach it to my daughter. 

–Anxiously Waiting

Dear Anxious,

Oh my goodness, I totally forgot to post this, even though I have a student working on it! So wait no longer, here it is! Click on the link below the picture of the music, and be sure to print it in landscape orientation.

–Susan

What Will I Say On Halloween? a beginning piece

What Will I Say On Halloween?

I wrote this for a new student right after her first lesson. She saw the all the Halloween sheet music around my studio,  and wistfully asked me if she could play a Halloween piece.  Of course I had to draw one before her next lesson because she is so darling and wanted one so badly!

Since this student is on the first pages of her book, I wrote it without notes, just finger numbers. I am sharing it with other teachers because it was too much work for just one student! She was having a little trouble with finger numbers, so I’m going to put an pumpkin ring on her 4th finger.

It is intended to be in 3 meter, played on the black keys with the left hand. The last note in each line is a dotted half note. If you tap out the rhythm on your piano cover, students will get a feel for how it goes.

So if you have a beginner or a preschool child of your own,  please feel free to use it. Maybe the ending will encourage your  students to compose their own song! What will they say at the end?
