Holiday What Song Is This? 

Encourage students to audiate, sight-read, or even just use the rhythm to identify each song with this free worksheet that includes songs in Treble, Bass, and Alto Clefs. If students are unfamiliar with a clef, encourage them to figure it out with the rhythm alone or even make a quick cheat-sheet clef drawing on the board to help! 

Hint: If students get stuck and need extra clues, prompt them to match the melodies to titles found in Classic Holiday Solos or Easy Christmas Instrumental Solos in the MakeMusic Cloud library!
