Write Your Own Spooky Story (Grades 3-5)

Just like a story has a beginning, middle and end, music also tells a story through its melody, rhythm, tempo (how fast or slow) and dynamics (how loud or soft). Now it’s your turn to write a story, inspired by music! Use the PDF worksheet to write your story and use the video to listen to the musical excerpts. This lesson was originally created as a preparatory resource for a Cleveland Orchestra Education Concert.
