I wanted to give them a little treat but also develop some of my own worksheets this year. I started off with my Composer Love Stories - telling them stories about composers, their wives, children, songs they wrote for them and then also mentioned some things about the 'Romantic' Period of music of course! To finish off this worksheet I did a little matching quiz to check to see if they really had read it all. Then I realised I needed more. A worksheet or two that would also be suitable for my much younger students! A Love Story to write, and you'll see I suggested they write it about music, or from their piano's perspective because really, which 6 year old will tell their piano teacher which boy they love at school?! And then finally, for all of the students that need quizzing on their notes on the staff, they can fill them in on the Love Note Staff Hunt hearts.

Just a little note: I purposefully do my documents in black and white only. I LOVE everybody's worksheets in colour, they look amazing, but for little piano teacher me trying not to print like crazy all the time I thought it would be good to stick to black and white for my worksheets this time (as my printer just ran off 75 sheets for this week!)... And well, my students love to colour anyway :-)
For when I am printing in colour (and I do that a lot too!) here is a great list of printer cost saving tips from amazing piano blogger Susan Paradis with her latest blog post - just click here!
I think we'll be having a lot of fun with it this week, please feel free to download these documents and let me know how you used them too!
