118 FREE Music Worksheets

FREE Music Worksheets

Here you can find worksheets that talk about music. There are many different aspects to this topic so you will see a lot of variety on the worksheets available in this section. Some worksheets talk about musical instruments, musicians, and the music industry while others focus more on lyrics. Take a look at some of the 118 worksheets in this section to find one that fits your class. This music worksheet is a very creative way to get your students to practice using the present continuous. Due to the fact that the songs are a little older, your students might have to do some research to find the answers or you could use the worksheet as a model for your own that includes more recent titles. There are other worksheets to choose from if your students are working on something else and you are welcome to post your own worksheets too!
Almost everyone enjoys listening to music so whether you decide to use songs in your lesson for a listening activity or introduce vocabulary related to musical instruments, your students will certainly be interested in this topic. Listening activities that use songs, while fun, are often very challenging for students because the speed is usually much faster than the one you use when speaking in class. Keep this in mind when making your song selections. The type of music you discuss in class will vary depending on your students. In Japan, for example, talking about J-pop artists and songs would be perfect for your high school students but not such a good fit for your older adult students. Try adding variety to your lessons but talking about music.
