Musical Stories (Grades 3-5)

Put your listening skills to the test, by matching the short stories with their musical excerpts! Click on the PDFs to open the stories and worksheets. Read the stories aloud and then listen to the three musical excerpts in the video. Do the music examples tell different stories? This lesson was originally created as a preparatory resource for a Cleveland Orchestra Education Concert.
