Christmas & Winter Composition Starters

Reader Bethany Ostler wrote to me this week and gave me permission to share this fun winter-themed composing worksheet she created:

Students can choose an idea from the sheet and use the lyrics given to create the first line of a composition, then add several more lines of their own.   Some students might also choose to use the ideas as an inspiration for a piece that doesn’t use lyrics.   I posted a similar sheet before Halloween, so for more details on how I use starter ideas with my students, check out this post.

Many thanks to Bethany for sharing!!   I’ve already printed copies for my students so they can start compositions and complete them in the weeks we’re off for Christmas break to earn some “extra credit” Bach Bucks!!   Click here to download the worksheet.
