Music Reading Practice Pages

These pages were designed by my friend and fellow elementary music teacher Jennifer Bailey (Farmington Public Schools) to assist students in developing their music reading skills. To see a page, click on a link below. Students will see a pattern, read the pattern, then hear the pattern read to them.
