I was recently asked about the musical alphabet in my classroom. I do not know the original source to credit it properly. I found it in a file cabinet at my very first school I taught at. I made a copy, colored it, laminated it, and there you go.
Here’s each small group of letters:
A-Accordion, B-Ballet, C-Clarinet, D-Drum
E-English Horn, F-French Horn, G-Guitar, H-Harp, I-Instruments
J-Jingle Bells, K-Kazoo, L-Lullaby, M-Maracas
N-Notes, O-Oboe, P-Piano
Q-Quartet, R-Recorder, S-Singing, T-Tuba
U-Ukelele, V-Violin, W-Woodblock
X-Xylophone, Y-Yodel, Z-Zither
I’m working on the elements of a word wall because I’d like to expand it. The kids use it sometimes. When we’re discussing a topic that is listed, they’ll point it out before I will. I hope this helps anyone who is looking for a musical alphabet. I’m sure something like this could be created on the computer using clip-art. I might try my hand at that…..
Thanks for reading!
