Preschool music worksheets

At the preschool stage, music is best learned by experience. Listening, singing, dancing, and playing simple rhythm instruments and clapping games will develop musical awareness as a foundation for later music learning. Musical instruments, solfege hand symbols, and letters of the musical alphabet can be introduced at this stage, but preschool is mostly a time to explore and enjoy the sound of music.

Use these sets of colorful flashcards to introduce preschoolers to some key musical concepts.

Music worksheets for kindergarten

In kindergarten, children start learning to read and write. It’s a good time for them to start learning the basics of music notation as well. Once children can write the letters of the alphabet, they can do simple music worksheets, like the ones in our Under the Sea Packet for Units 1-2. In this ocean-themed packet, students will identify whether a note is on a line or a space, practice naming notes on the piano keyboard, and write the letters of the musical alphabet in order.

Remember that young children develop different skills at different times. Doing music worksheets should be a fun and challenging experience. If your child seems frustrated, set the activity aside and try again in a few months.

Elementary music worksheets 

Hoffman Academy has a large library of music worksheets for elementary music students. Each of our packets comes in three different levels from beginning through elementary. Packets are themed by different holidays or areas of interest, and use activities like matching, fill-in-the-blank, coloring, crossword puzzles, word searches, and more to reinforce music concepts.

All of our packets are available in the Hoffman Academy Store. They’re free to download for Premium members, or can be purchased for $2.99.
